How to Print

Follow these instructions for using PaperCut to release print jobs sent to lab printers: Lab Printing


All CCA students are given $15 of free printing per semester. This amount is deposited in each student print account a few days after the add/drop deadline of each semester. Once you have used up your semester quota, you can continue printing by adding fund to your print account via the PaperCut User Page.

CCA faculty are eligible to have a print account which offers the same access to the printing resources that students have, at the same prices. Faculty can use a print account for any work/personal purposes. Faculty receive $75 of funds each semester . For more information about adding funds, see Using your Print Account. The College also designates a printing budget for each academic program which faculty can use for any course-related printing and copying.


Please review the Printing Policy to understand the rules and guidelines for your print account.
