Service Hours



Faculty and Staff: Departments are responsible for printer consumables (ex: paper, toner, maintenance kits, and items not covered under the service contract)

Student and affiliate printing is currently charged as follows:

  1. Black-and-white laser output:
    • $0.10 per piece of paper
    • We recommend printing double-sided to reduce your cost
  2. Color laser output:
    • $0.50 per piece of paper
    • We recommend printing double-sided to reduce your cost

Each student is allocated a $50 print credit in mid-September every year.  Once the credit is exhausted, the printing costs incurred will be charged to your term bill each month during the academic year. Your print usage is tracked by the system and the accumulated dollar amount is charged to your term bill. This charge will appear on your term bill as “Printing- HLS”. You will not receive any notification from the system when you have exhausted your allocation credit. It is the responsibility of the individual to monitor personal print usage. You can track your balances on the PaperCut web client.

If you do not want your printing costs charged to your term bill, you may pre-pay for printing with cash at the WCC computer lab. If you run out of cash in your deposit account, subsequent printing will be charged to your term bill. Also, cash is non-refundable, so please budget carefully.
