Student print allocations and pricing

The student print allocation is 400 single-sided black and white sheets per semester (fall and spring).

The print allocation is managed with your UMass Pass. You'll need to swipe your UMass Pass at the print release station.

Your initial allocation represents $40 "print dollars," which cannot be refunded or re-allocated to other UMass Pass accounts. Note that:

  • Fall allocations roll over to the spring semester
  • All allocations are cleared each spring & begin again in the fall
  • Students receive 200 single-print sheets per intersession or summer session

Forgot your UMass Pass? There is a coin-operated print release station in the Claire T. Carney Library Learning Commons.

Print pricing 

  • Black & white single: 10¢
  • Black & white duplex: 15¢
  • Color single: 25¢
  • Color duplex: 40¢

Maximize your print allocation (and save paper) by selecting duplex printing whenever possible. Check with your professor before handing in a printed assignment that is duplexed.

If you need additional printing capacity beyond the allocation, you can deposit additional print funds to your UMass Pass at:

  • UMass Pass online: you may add additional funds in increments of $25
  • UMass Pass office: you may add additional funds with a minimum of $1 in cash or $25 via credit card

During the academic year, the UMass Pass office is typically open Monday to Friday, 9am to 4pm.

When you add more funds for printing, they are loaded to the UMDollars account (and can be re-allocated for purposes other than printing). Funds for printing will always come out of your print allocation first.

The print release stations indicate your total UMass Pass funds: the balance shown is a combination of your UMass Pass general fund plus your print allocation for the semester or session. To check your specific print allocation balance, visit UMass Pass online or myPrintCenter.
