How to Pay for Printing

Patrons use a copy card to pay for their print jobs. These cards can be purchased from a Cash-to-Card (aka DART) machine located in various places around campus.
  • If you have a copy card, simply add money to it.
  • If not, purchase a blank card for a dollar, then add money to it.
    Note: You must have a dollar bill to purchase a card, and there is no value on the card until you add it.
