Student print allocations

The student print allocation is 400 single-sided black and white sheets per semester (fall and spring). This is double what the average student prints per semester.

A year-long analysis of student printing patterns indicates that most students will have ample ability to print their academic work within these allocations. The average student prints 200 sheets per semester.

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

Your initial allocation of 400 sheets represents $40 "print dollars," which cannot be refunded or re-allocated to other UMass Pass accounts.

  • 400 single-sided black and white sheets per semester (fall & spring)
  • Fall allocations roll over to the spring semester
  • All allocations are cleared each spring & begin again in the fall
  • 200 single-print sheets per intersession or summer session

Print pricing

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

Print management

Use your UMass Pass to manage your print allocation, and to load additional funds for printing needs beyond your starting allocation.

Maximize your print allocation (and save paper) by selecting duplex printing whenever possible. Instead of paying 20 cents for two single-printed black and white sheets, you will get two pages printed on a single sheet for 15 cents.

Suggestion: Check with your professor before handing in a printed assignment that is duplexed.

Printing beyond your allocation

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

  • UMass Pass online: you can add additional funds in increments of $25
  • UMass Pass office: you can 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.

If you need to add more funds for printing, they will be 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.

Remember: Fall allocations roll over to the spring semester. All allocations are cleared each spring and begin again in the fall. There is an allocation of 200 single-sided sheets for intersession or summer session.

Printing in a hurry? There is a coin-operated print release station in the Claire T. Carney Learning Commons.

 

Printing from your computer or moblie device

Printless lets you print from your laptop, desktop computer, or mobile device. This expanded printing capability lets you send a print job to any one of the CITS Xerox PrintLess release stations:

The simplest way to print is using your UMassD email account. Login to your UMass Dartmouth email with your credentials then send the document as an attachment to printbw@umassd.edu for black and white printing, or printcolor@umassd.edu for color printing.

Important; You can only print attachments at the Xerox PrintLess printers, not at the HP printers in the computer labs

The following attachment file types are supported:

  • Adobe Portable Document Format (PDF)
  • Microsoft Word (.docx)
  • Microsoft Excel (.xlsx)
  • Microsoft PowerPoint (.pptx)
  • Microsoft Visio (.vsdx)
  • OpenOffice
  • Image Files (.jpg, .gif, .png, .bmp)
  • Text Files (.rtf, .txt, .csv) 

Remember that text and image files must be attached. They cannot be in the body of the email message.

Stop by within two hours to release the print job from the print queue.

If you need to print a different file format, print in color, or have other printing needs, you can also print directly from your laptop or desktop computer.

This printing option works from any computer on campus with a valid UMass Dartmouth network connection or from off campus with VPN access.
