Printing Policies

Black and white and color laser printing is available at Tech Commons. When users submit their print job to a printer, they also attach a simple password. To release their print job, they swipe their Cougar Card at the release station near the printer and enter the simple password. Staff members are always available to assist. Each user is allowed 503 pages each semester at no charge. Once a user has reached 503 pages, he/she will be charged $0.0149 a page. Color printing is available for twenty cents/page ($0.20). The user assumes all risks and Tech Commons will not be responsible for output quality, security, or mishandling by the user. Tech Commons management may, at their discretion, replace poor quality output resulting from an equipment problem.
