The standard computing services allocates $24.00 per term to students ($3.00 per term to faculty and staff) for printing at all ITS Campus Computing Sites printers. (Double-sided (duplex) printing counts as two impressions.) Black-and-white and color impression are charged at $0.06 and $0.23 per 8.5"x11" impression, respectively..
You can determine how many pages you've printed at the MPrint Usage page.
Billing methods for printing beyond the $24.00 allocation included in the standard computing services are:
Students will be billed directly to their university student account and costs will appear on their tuition statements.
Faculty and staff must have made prior funding arrangements using a departmental ShortCode. Please call the ITS Service Center at 734-764-4357 (4-HELP).
Printing charges that appear on your student account are not added in real time, but are actually charges for printing that happened in the previous month. At the beginning of each month, all the charges from the previous month are calculated and sent to the student account. The date listed on the student account for printing charges can be misleading, as the date shows when the charge hit the student account, not when the printing was actually done. For example, if a student sees a printing charge on his student account that posted on 01/07/2015, the charge is actually for printing that was done in December 2014.
Yes. The College of Engineering provides a supplemental print allocation to eligible student CAEN account holders that will be utilized automatically when you exhaust your standard computing services allocation. The supplemental print allocation may be used at any ITS Campus Computing Sites printer.
You are only charged for pages that physically come out of the printer. You may submit a refund request in the event of poor output quality (i.e. illegible text due to low toner). You may request a refund for print jobs that charged up to one year ago. Refund requests for jobs older than one year will be denied. To submit a request, log in to your printing account at accounts.miprint.it.umich.edu and click on Recent Print Jobs. Click Request Refund under the print job to submit your request.
Campus Computing Sites has switched to 30% post-consumer recycled paper for all black-and-white printing services and 100% post-consumer recycled paper for all color printing services. The acid-free recycled paper is Environmental Chlorine-Free (ECF).
ITS and the Provost's Office hope to be able to keep service levels high (and the price of printing low), but our ability to do so depends in part on whether students use printing resources in a responsible and appropriate way.
DO NOT insert different paper or other materials into the printers (i.e., resumé paper or transparency sheets). These objects may jam and damage the printer's inner components, for which you will be held responsible.
DO NOT take paper from the Sites printers. Removing paper from the Sites printers is considered as an act of theft, and disciplinary action will be taken.
DO NOT power off the printers. If you are experiencing any problems with the printers, contact the Sites staff or report the problem by calling 734-764-4357 (4-HELP).
Don't forget that by following a few environmentally responsible practices we can significantly reduce the amount of unusable output we create in the Sites. A few simple resource-saving techniques include:
With a registered account, guests can use any guest computer to print to any Sites printer. Please visit the Guest Printing web page to get started.
Guests can check their printing balance, view job history, and request refunds like any other user. Funds are added to guest accounts at the circulation desk. A guest printing card is only needed to copy, scan-to-email, and use Follow Me.
