Student Printing Program

The Student Printing Program is a campus-wide solution for all NCCU students. The program allows students to print documents in black and white or color from various locations across campus.

The annual print credit is below:

  • $15 – Fall Semester
  • $15 – Spring Semester
  • $15 – Summer Sessions (summer session credits are only added to students enrolled in the summer sessions)

Students can pay online to add funds to their print balance through PaperCut online.  Students can add to their account in $2.50, $5.00 and $10.00 increments.

Print Balance

Students check their print quota balance two ways:

  1. A pop-up window shows the account balance when a student logs in to a library computer
  2. The print quota balance is available to the student through PaperCut online, along with a list of transactions and print history

Remaining print balances from fall will roll over to spring semester with any spring balance rolling over to summer. All balances are reset to the initial quota amount on August 1. Any leftover summer funds are lost except for personal funds added to the account using a personal credit or debit card.  These funds will be used before the semester credits are used.

There are 3 means of printing:

  1. Traditional Printing: From a computer in the Shepard Library
