Printing on Campus with PaperCut

Printing Overview

Students receive $15 print credit each semester. Once this credit has been used, students will need to purchase additional print credit at the library's front desk. 

View your PaperCut printing account here: papercut.millsaps.edu/app

  • Double-sided/duplex prints are $.07 per page. Double-sided printing is the default on campus.
  • Single-sided prints are $.05 per page. Your $15 credit equals 300 pages.
  • You can buy $1 or $5 print cards at the Library using cash, check, or by charging your student account.
  • Balances remaining at the end of the Fall Semester can be carried over to the Spring Semester. Quota balances will not carry over to the Fall semester. Purchased print funds carry over, but there are no cash refunds for purchased print funds.
  • Your account will not be charged if the printer jams or runs out of paper. 
  • Even if you cancel a job, it still may appear as though it printed, but you should not be charged. Check your recent print jobs in PaperCut to see what you have been charged.
  • Student organizations have special printing accounts for officers and are billed separately by Student Affairs. Student workers also have special printing accounts for work-related printing. Check with your supervisor for information. These accounts are monitored to ensure they are not being used for personal printing.

Printing to a Student Lab Printer

In an application (Word, Excel, etc.), click the print button and then click OK. Printing defaults to duplex (double-sided) printing. Single-sided printing can be selected by clicking Properties, then Printing Shortcuts tab, and changing the Print on Both Sides setting.

Then, the PaperCut Job Notification window opens showing the number of pages in the job and the cost to be charged to your account. If you are authorized to charge to another account select that account. Select Print.

Your print job will not have a cover sheet. Be sure to retrieve it as soon as possible.
