Tip: If you do not see any print jobs listed, it is possible you entered the incorrect barcode number. Return to your lab workstation and try to print again, carefully entering the barcode number as listed on the front of your Courtesy Card.

Old Courtesy Cards: If your Courtesy Card does not have a barcode printed on the front, visit Campus Card's offices so they can transfer your funds to a new Courtesy Card. You may also visit a ValuePort terminal to purchase a new Courtesy Card with the barcode number on the front.

Single-Sided and Duplex Printing

All standard Black & White printers are set to print double-sided (duplex) by default as this method reduces waste of paper and supplies. As this method removes the need for additional sheets, the cost for duplex printing is discounted when compared to printing two single-sided documents. If you wish to print single-sided (simplex), instead of the double-sided (duplex) default, be cognizant that this will result in a higher cost for the print job as described in the Printing Costs section.
