Print Services


Carroll College ITStudents can print up to 350 black and white pages per semester at no additional charge. Students are provided a $35.00 print quota as part of the student's technology fee. Print quotas are tallied for each student and charged against the $35.00. Black & white laser prints are charged at $.10 per page and color laser prints are charged at $.25 per page.

If you reach the $35.00 limit before the end of the semester, you may purchase additional pages in the Carroll Business Office. Pages that your purchase will stay with your balance from semester to semester although the orignal $35.00 will be reset each semester. Check your print balance

Printing Best Practices

 Be part of the sustainability movement. Printing less means using less paper and less toner which means lower costs and less impact on the environment! Some ways to do this:

  • Carroll College ITOnly print out the information you need. Many times you will only need a portion of the information on a web page. You can use the Copy command to copy only the sections you need and Paste that information to a Word file to print less.
  • Be sure to select only the pages you need in the Print dialog box. You can specify select pages to print rather than the entire document.
  • Make sure your computer is not targeted to print to a color printer unless you need a color print. Some color printers (Fortin Lab) will print black and white but your print settings need to indicate that you are printing black and white only.  If you do not specify, it will charge for color.
  • Please do not purchase any more print quota than you plan to use... it's non-refundable!
  • Leave duplex printing on (it is enabled by default) not only does this save paper but it saves you 10%

Print Numbers

Note: Due to the fact that  color printouts cost more to your print quota than black and white printouts - you may run out of your print quota even though you have not printed a full 350 pages.
