Student Printing: PaperCut

Table of Contents:



SVC now has the PaperCut pay-to-print system for student printing. PaperCut allows you to manage your print balance online and retrieve your print job from any PaperCut enabled printer.

Each student gets $5.00 of printing allocated to them each quarter (the standard cost per page is $.03 for black and white or $.13 per page for color).  To take advantage of your student print allocation, you will need to obtain and register a print key fob. Please follow the below walkthroughs to print at SVC Student Printers.

In order to follow these instructons, the student will need to have their MYSVC account information.
