Print jobs sent to black and white printers will be deducted from the user’s quota at the rate of five‐cents per page. Print jobs sent to color printers will be deducted from the user’s quota at the rate of twelve‐cents per page. Duplex (double-sided) print jobs receive a 20% discount. For example, a four-page black and white document normally costs $0.20, and a two-page black and white duplex document would cost $0.16 (20% off of $0.20). Unused portions of the “free” allotment of print quota will NOT be carried forward to the next allotment period, NOR will it be refunded upon graduating or leaving the University, so it is important to purchase only the minimum amount required to meet your needs. Users who exceed their $20 quota during either the fall or spring allotment period will need to purchase additional pages equivalent to 50, 100, 150 or 200 b/w page increments. Purchasing additional pages is done through the “Add More” link found to the right of the "Print Balance " title under the Dashboard section of the Go Sidebar within myPlymouth.

Faculty/staff have departmental printers and/or copiers to print/copy materials for their courses. These printers and/or copiers do not deduct from the faculty/staff member's print quota.

I’m a faculty/staff member, and I don’t have any more quota! Help!
Faculty and staff should use their departmental printers and/or copiers to print/copy materials for their courses, as printing to any public printer will deduct from each individual staff/faculty member’s allotted print quota. This deduction is NOT reimbursed.
