Student Printing

To encourage sustainability and reduce wasteful printing, Ithaca College uses a print management program in the library and all student computer labs. The program enables students to upload documents remotely to from residential halls or off-campus locations and print jobs in the Library, Friends 110, CHS Computer Lounge, Business Atrium, Business 115, and Park 113. Alumni are given the same allowances as students and may follow the same procedures for printing.

Through the print management program, students are given complimentary print allowances at the start of each semester and can use ID Express for printing needs that exceed the allowance. The allowances are:

  • $7.50 summer semester (May 20, 2020 - August 11, 2020) for approximately 107 double-sided pages
  • $15 fall semester (Sept. 8, 2020 – Dec. 30, 2020) for approximately 214 double-sided pages
  • $15 spring semester (Jan. 25, 2021 – May 19, 2021) for approximately 214 double-sided pages

Unused allowances from the fall roll over to the spring semester. Unused allowances after the spring and summer semesters do not roll over. To keep the print management system current, printing history for all accounts will be deleted annually when fall allowances are set.

Print costs are $0.05 single-sided, $0.07 double-sided for black and white printing and $0.30 single-sided, $0.56 double-sided for color printing.

This article does not apply to faculty, who have unrestricted printing after logging in.
