Print Credits

Print credits are a way to keep track of the amount of printing for each computer lab user. Utilizing a print credit system is a way for our lab to fairly distribute printing capabilities throughout the computer lab’s user base.

How to check your current amount of print credits?

While you are logged into one of the computer lab workstations, Launch the application “Print credits” located in the “Applications” folder.
Once launched, the application will display your current print credit amount.










What does it cost to print to each printer?

See the Printing page.

How to get more print credits?

There are four way to get more print credits

1. Course Fees. If you are taking a Design class that meets in the computer lab, either $50 (for Design I-A, I-B, II-A, Practicum) or $10 (for Design II-B, III-A, III-B) will be placed into your printing account within the first two weeks of the semester.

2. Purchase credits with a check or money order, made out to Rutgers University. Give the check or money order to Shane Whilden who usually can credit your account immediately. Sorry, cash not accepted.

3. Transfer from another user’s account. If a friend is willing, you can transfer print credits like so:

After the application is launched, click on the word “Details …” at the bottom of the application window.





This should automatically sub launch your default web browser and bring you to a login window. Use your computer lab login information to gain access to your printing account.








After you are logged in, click “transfers” from the left hand column.









At the transfer page, you will only need to choose the transfer amount and username of the person you will be transferring to. Remember the username is typically the persons last name in lower case. You can leave a comment if you like.
