Print Management Program

In an effort to encourage sustainability and reduce wasteful printing, Ithaca College implemented a print management program in the library and all student computer labs. Prior to this program, 20% of paper printed at these locations was immediately discarded or not claimed.

Through the 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 22, 2017 – Aug. 13, 2017) approximately 107 double-sided pages
  • $15 fall semester (Aug. 14, 2017 – Dec. 29, 2017) approximately 214 double-sided pages
  • $15 spring semester (Dec. 30, 2017 – May 20, 2018) 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.

The new printing program enables students to upload documents remotely to from residential halls or off-campus locations and print jobs in the Library, Friends 110, Williams 210, CHS Computer Lounge, Business Atrium, Business 115, and Park 113.
