Available To

  • Degree or Credit-Seeking Students
  • Faculty
  • Staff

Access

Print points may be used through August 15th of the current academic year. After that, any remaining print points will expire. Print points are an allocation that does not translate into actual currency, but helps support more orderly printing and reduces waste. No refunds or credit are issued for unused print points.

Location

Degree or Credit seeking students, faculty and staff have access to Academic Technology printers throughout the campus.

Use

Please follow the below workflow tips and best practices for printing in the labs:

  • Save large files as NewschoolPDF and print from Acrobat. Save a copy of your file as a PDF. If using an Adobe program such as Illustrator, you will then see a PDF settings window. Make sure NewschoolPDF is selected as the preset. Save the PDF to Work In Progress, and open it with Acrobat Pro.
  • Print from the Work In Progress drive. Save your file to Work In Progress, and open it from there. Files printed directly from removable media (flash drive, CD, etc), the Drop Box, the web, or an email attachment may stall the printing network or may become
    corrupted.
  • 8.5" x 11" (letter) and 11" x 17" (tabloid) are the only sizes available (unless printing to a plotter).
  • Double-Sided printing is the default on all black & white printers. (Exception: Mac Adobe Acrobat X defaults to single sided, you must manually change to double sided if desired)
  • Be patient in times of heavier traffic. Printers can only process one file at a time. Sending your file more than once only adds to the traffic, slowing everything down. If your document exceeds 20 pages, try printing 20 pages at a time.
  • Users may not add or remove paper in lab printers. Printing on your own paper is not allowed, except for photo paper in photo room printers.
