ITS-004: Student Printing Policy

PLEASE NOTE: This policy is published as binding draft while under campus review. If you would like to submit feedback on the draft policy and related documents, please use the feedback form.

I. Policy Statement

The University of Massachusetts Dartmouth holds students accountable for their print usage.

II. Purpose

The Student Printing Policy aims to reduce toner and paper waste by requiring print jobs to be released and eliminating scrap prints.

III. Procedures

Every semester, each student is allotted a print budget onto their UMassPass. Students send their print materials to a print management queue.  Then the students release the materials by swiping their UMassPass for printing on one of the student print stations across campus. The print budget will be reduced by the number of printed pages.

The Library Learning Commons provides a coin operated print station.

IV. Responsibility

Computing & Information Technology Services (CITS) has overall responsibility for implementation of this policy.
