Print Credits for Students

Students are given a standard number of print credits each semester. This allows printing on all public printers on campus (computer labs, classrooms, libraries, etc.). Once these have been used students may purchase additional print credits either through their SpiderCard accounts or from the main service desk at Boatwright Library or the HelpDesk.  The HelpDesk does not accept cash or credit cards, but will process transactions with a students' SpiderCard. Boatwright Library accepts cash or SpiderCards.  To check your print credit balance, please visit and use your netid and password to log in.

Getting Started


Print credits issued in the fall and spring semesters will carry over through completion of the end of the summer terms. At the end of the summer term all print credits will be set to zero. New print credits will be credited at the beginning of the fall semester as described above.

Students can purchase additional print credits. Each credit is 4 cents and print credits are sold in increments of 25 credits. One print credit prints a page on a black and white printer and four print credits prints a single page on a color printer. Front and back counts as one page. Printing a black and white page on a color printer costs the same as a color print.  The type of printer dictates the cost of the print. Additional print credits can be purchased in Boatwright Library or at the HelpDesk. The HelpDesk does not accept cash or credit cards, but will process transactions with a students' SpiderCard. 

Guests and Events

If printing is required for these accounts, they can be purchased from the main service desk in Boatwright Library (the maximum cash purchase at the library is $10.00 (250 credits)). For Events if purchasing credits in advance, the request must be predetermined with scheduling the event. For Events print please include an index account number and the number of print credits per account.  For Community and Guest accounts Print Credits can be purchased at Boatwright Memorial Library front desk, cash only.
