Pay for Print Information

The Information Services department is in the process of testing a system to increase mindful printing, officially beginning June 2014. This system allows a reasonable amout of printed pages each semester, and charges a small fee if you print above the allotted amount.


Campus-wide testing will began in January 2014. After you submit a print job, there is an additional pop up box that confirms the job, and has a "cost" listing. There is an amount shown, and each time you print, there will be a deduction from this amount. If you run out of credit in your account in Spring 2014, you can request more credit via this online form and you will not be charged. If you would like more information about the process, please view the Quick Tip here.

Beginning June 4, 2014, the Pay for Print system will be fully in place. Once you run out of credit in your account, you will need to purchase more. See Cost Information below to see if you qualify for an initial credit in your account.

Cost Information

Each page will cost $0.05. As an incentive to save paper, if you print double-sided, each side will only cost $0.03. Various groups on campus may receive automatic credit per semester. This additional information may be found below:


You will receive $25.00 (500 single-sided or 833 double-sided pages) per semester. If you would like to print more than this per semester, you will need to pay for additional print credit.

Faculty, Staff, & Adjuncts

You will not be charged for printing; however, printing will be tracked. To be mindful of printing, you will still need to select "Print" on the extra pop up window after submitting a print job.


After graduation, alumni will recieve $10.00 (200 single-sided or 333 double-sided pages). After using this amount, alumni will need to purchase additional print credit.

Camp Attendees & Conference Guests

Prints must be requested for the camp- or conference-specific accounts. To request print credit for your camp or conference accounts, please contact Jeff Brown (801.832.2900).

Community Members

Community members will be charged for any pages printed. The help desk staff will release the print job after the community member has paid for his or her pages.

Affiliates & Board Members

You will not be charged for printing; however, printing will be tracked. You will still need to select "Print" on the extra pop up window after submitting a print job.

Additional Cost Information

Print credits are non-refundable and non-transferrable. You may pay for additional printing credit at the cashier's window, the library circulation desk, or online through PaperCut.

Mindful Printing

Before printing, ask yourself:

  • Do I need this on paper?
  • Can I save it electronically?
  • Can it be duplexed (two-sided)?
  • Am I willing to pay for it?

Other colleges that have implemented this system have noticed a 30% decrease in paper waste. Westminster is hoping to see similar results in our continuing effort to lower our environmental impact.
