WVC implemented a new printing system, called PaperCut, in Fall of 2012. You must use a campus computer, such as those in the library or computer labs, in order to print to campus printers. Each time you initialize a print, you’ll see a popup message that shows you how much the current job will cost.
Click the PaperCut icon in the lower right corner of your screen to display your current balance, or to see a detailed printing history.
If your account is at zero, you will not be able to print. You cannot go into the negative. The system does not affect your other WVC accounts – holds will not be placed due to lack of printing funds.
You will be charged 5 cents per page for black and white, and 35 cents per page for color. You’ll be charged separately for each side of a page that you print, although you can print more than one page per side if you’d like.
Students start each quarter with a free credit of $15 provided by the college. Once these funds are used up, additional money can be added through the use of the PaperCut machine in the Library (pictured at right), next to the Reference Desk. It accepts both bills and coins, but does not take credit cards.
There will be no return of funds – all accounts are cleared at the end of each quarter.
You won’t be charged unless your job prints. Seek assistance if the printer is not working. If the job does print but is unusable due to low ink or mangled paper, please seek out a staff member and they can credit your account.
