Printing Costs and Guidelines

Printing & Copying

Great Bay Community College uses a print management solution called PaperCut for network printing from college computers. Every student is given a $40 initial credit for printing and/or copying (scanning to a USB Thumb Drive is free). It is every student's responsibility to monitor their own print account and ration their quota appropriately. If a student runs out of their initial $40 credit they can purchase more credits by visiting the One Stop. All credits expire at the end of every semester and another $40 credit will be reloaded for the new semester. No refunds will be issued for any unused credits (including purchased credits) per semester. Note: There are three semesters in an academic year, Fall, Spring, and Summer. Quotas will start the first day of each semester.
