Printing and Copying


What if students exceed their initial print and copy credit?

Students who expend all of their allotted printing credits may purchase additional printing credits at the following locations:

  • T.T. Allain Room 205
  • University Library Room 210
  • Law Center 1st Floor
  • Residential Life Student Center
  • Bursars Office

Purchased printing credits can be used to print in any SU Student Computer Lab. However, unlike printing credits given at the start of the semester, purchased credits will carry forward to the next semester.

Is this an additional fee for printing?

The virtual printing credits students receive each semester are not "added on" to the fees students already pay, but are instead allocated from the portion of the Technology Use Fee already dedicated to supporting the Student Computer Labs. Virtual printing credits have no monetary value and cannot be transferred or converted to an actual cash balance.

How is the cost of a print job calculated?

Printing is provided by the Pharos network system at the following rates:

  • Ten cents ($0.10) for 1 single-sided Black & White sheet.
  • Twenty cents ($0.20) for 1 double-sided Black & White sheet.
  • One dollar ($1.00) for 1 single-sided Color sheet.
  • Two dollars ($2.00) for 1 double-sided Color sheet

How is the cost of copy job calculated?

Copies are Black & White Only

  • Ten cents ($0.10) for 1 single-sided Black & White Sheet.
  • Twenty cents ($0.20) for 1 double-sided Black & White Sheet.

There is no refund option once the printing credit is used, so please proofread your work before printing. If you experienced a printing problem due to a printer or copy malfunction, report it to the nearest lab staff for a reprint at no cost.

Students who experience issues with their print credit balance should contact the Office of Auxiliary Services located in F. G. Clark Activity Center.
