Go Green Print Initiative

The Go-Green Print Initiative is a campus-wide effort to reduce paper consumption in support of the College’s sustainability goals and is expected to conserve our natural resources and reduce costs. 

How many free print credits will I get each semester?

  • Students will receive the following number of free print credits each semester: 
  • Fall: 12.500 print credits (equivalent to 250 black & white pages)
  • Winter: 3.750 print credits (equivalent to 75 black & white pages)
  • Spring: 12.500 print credits (equivalent to 250 black & white pages)
  • Summer: 12.500 print credits (equivalent to 250 black & white pages)

Print fees are deducted from your LAZER CARD balance once you have exhausted your allocated free print credits.

How many print credits are used for each page that I print?

  • It depends on whether you’re printing black & white or color, and single-sided or double-sided.
  • B&W Single-sided: 0.050 credits/sheet (1 side)
  • B&W Double-sided: 0.050 credits/sheet (2 sides)
  • Color Single-sided: 0.200 credits/side (1 side)
  • Color Double-sided: 0.400 credits/sheet (2 sides)

You can get the most number of free prints by printing double-sided, black & white pages. For example, if you print a 10 page document B&W single-sided, it will cost 0.500 print credits. If you print a 10 page document B&W double-sided, it will cost 0.250 print credits.

How do I know how many free print credits I have left?

Each time you print, a pop-up window will display your remaining print credit balance. You’ll have to confirm that you want to print the document by clicking “Print It” on the window.

Why are we changing the campus printing policy?

The Go Green Print Initiative is a campus-wide effort to reduce paper consumption in support of the College’s sustainability goals. We’ve found that thousands of sheets of paper are being wasted in the computer labs everyday due to excessive printing. The Go Green Print Initiative is expected to significantly reduce wasted paper in order to conserve our natural resources and reduce costs.

Who do I contact if I have additional questions?

Please visit the Lazer Card office located in the SRC Arena Box Office.
