August of each year) students will have their Semester Allotment for printing at on
campus printers and multifunction printers (copiers) set to $5.00. This represents
a free credit equal to 50 free pages of black and white printing single-sided, or
the equivalent of 71 pages when printing on both sides of the page (color printing
is available in some areas and is charged at $0.25 single-sided, and $0.23 double-sided).
