Print Smart

Print Smart is a print-accounting service that manages printing usage in the computing sites.

Print Smart for Students

Students can print to on-campus printers from computing site or personal computers using their Print Smart account. All students automatically get a Print Smart account with a quota. When printing, students just enter their PawPrint and myZou password to authorize a print job. A portion of the cost of student printing is funded through the Information Technology Fee (ITF).

Print Quota

Each student has a Print Smart quota. The cost of each print is deducted from that quota.

  • Undergraduates receive a $35 nonrefundable quota for the academic year (fall and spring semesters).
  • Graduate and professional students receive a $50 nonrefundable quota for the academic year.
  • Students enrolled for a summer session receive an additional $7 non-refundable print quota.

Students can track . If a student uses up their Print Smart quota, the cost of each additional print is added to their monthly billing statement.

Print Smart for Faculty/Staff

For MU-related activities, faculty and staff (or students with departmental teaching/research appointments) can print to campus printers using a MoCode for payment.

Faculty and staff enter their PawPrint/MoCode for the user name. The password will be the same as their email password.
