A brief description of how printing is limited:

Why Managed Print?

Costs related to printing have escalated over the last few years as more electronic resources are becoming available through UAA Online, the Consortium Libraries electronic resources, book publisher's websites, and other sources. To bring balance back into the system by promoting responsible printing and to conserve resources by controlling abuse, waste, and rising costs, Information Technology Services has implemented the user-friendly Managed Print service as a cost recovery system. Students pay a technology fee of $40 per semester and are credited with $10 for printing from that fee.

Printing costs are:

Simplex (single-sided) Black & White Laser prints: $0.08 ea.
Duplex (double-sided) Black & White Laser prints: $0.14 ea.
Simplex 11"x17" Black & White Laser prints: $0.17 ea.
Duplex 11"x17" Black & White Laser prints: $0.20 ea.
Simplex 8.5"x11" Color Laser prints: $0.41 ea.
Duplex 8.5"x11" Color Laser prints: $0.51 ea.
Simplex 11"x17" Color Laser prints: $0.49 ea.
Duplex 11"x17" Color Laser prints: $0.68 ea.

After students reach their limit, they must pay for additional copies out of pocket.
