The college has a low-cost pay-to-print system used from all computers in the campus libraries and academic computing centers. The libraries provide access to multifunction copiers/printers from each computer. These can also be used for color or black-and-white copying. The academic computing centers have only black-and-white laser printers. [See step-by-step instructions for using the system]
Black and white printing and copying
$0.05 per side
Color printing and copying
$0.20 per side
What’s the Release Key?
Whatever you want it to be! The Release Key is your password used to print your jobs. It must be at least 4 characters long and no longer than 14 characters.
Try using your phone number, college EmplID or MyJSRCC username.
If you use the same Release Key for multiple print jobs, you can print them all at one time.
Why do I have to pay for printing?
I don’t want to pay to print - what are my alternatives?
Save your work to a flash drive.
Email your work to yourself.
Write it down! Sometimes a few notes are all you need.
Why doesn’t the student “technology fee” pay for my printing
The “technology fee” included in the per-credit hour tuition and fee rate covers the purchase and maintenance of the computer hardware and software but does not cover the cost of materials, such as paper and toner.
How can I save money while using the printers?
Print carefully. Use Print Preview to check how many pages are in the documents or web sites before printing them.
Print multiple. PowerPoint slides can be printed with multiple slides per page. Staff members are happy to show you how.
Print only what you need. Ask yourself “Do I really need this? Can I use this in another form…or can I print just part of it?”
Do I have to pay for copies I don’t want or don’t like?
The college cannot give refunds for unintended copies or prints.
I do not have any $1 or $5 bills but only $20 or $50 bills. How can I print?
Be prepared! The vending machine only accepts $1 and $5 bills.
Students may get change from the Business Office during regular business hours. Library and academic computing center staff cannot make change.
No credit or debit cards.
I can’t find my print job, and I sent it twice!
Resend the job with a shorter password.
Make sure you authorize the cost by clicking “accept” after inputting your release key. Not doing this can stall the printer.
Ask a staff member! We are happy to help.
Printing jobs that have been submitted but not released are held in the system for no more than 4 hours. Once released or deleted, printing jobs cannot be retrieved.
Don't store your print card next to your cell phone or other electronic devices that might erase the magnetic strip on your print card where the value is stored.
To save paper, please consider double-sided printing and copying in the libraries. You can choose the duplex option in Print Properties before submitting your print job. Costs are priced per side, not per page, so duplex printing does not reduce your cost.
