Student Print Management at Alfred University

What is it?
ITS computer labs and AU's libraries have a Managed Printing Program for students. The purpose of this is to reduce unnecessary printing in public computer labs on campus.

How does it work?
Using a print management software program called PaperCut, AU assigns each student a set number of free printed pages per semester. Each student can view his or her printing balance as a dollar amount. After a student has exceeded the number of free prints, he or she may add money to his or her account and continue printing. At the end of the month, the individual's student account is charged for the extra amount. Any dollar amount added to a student's account is non-refundable.

Students print using a "fob" or by entering their Alfred username and password. See instructions.

What is the cost of each printed page?

Type of Printing Total Cost
One Side, Black & White $0.03
Two Side, Both Black & White $0.03
One Side, Color $0.16
Two Sides, Both Color $0.16
Two Sides, One Black & White and 1 Color $0.10

What is my printing allowance?
All undergraduate students are provided a print balance of $10.50, or 350 black and white pages per semester. All graduate students are given a balance of $24.00 or 800 black and white pages per semester.
