Print Smart

Never worry about having enough money to print that homework assignment (or flyer) when printing to an on-campus printer. Print Smart allows you to manage your print allowance; just authenticate using your username and password to authorize a print job.

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

Students use their non-refundable print allowance to print to numerous on-campus printers; the cost of each print job is deducted from that allowance. The student Print Smart allowance is allocated at the beginning of each semester so if you are enrolled, you can print, including Summer Semester! Undergrads receive $17.50 at the beginning of Fall and Spring semester, $7 for Summer semester. Graduate/Professional students receive $25 at the beginning of Fall and Spring semester, $7 Summer semester.

Print Smart allowances reset on the following schedule:

  • August 3            Fall 2015
  • December 21     Spring 2016
  • May 16              Summer 2016

Students can track usage and remaining allowance online. Used up this semester’s allowance? No problem, the cost of each additional print is charged to your student account.

Faculty and staff (or students with departmental teaching/research appointments) can print to campus printers using a MoCode for payment. Ask your department fiscal officer to add you as an authorized user to the appropriate MoCode. Then authenticate with your username/MoCode and password to authorize your print job.

Print Smart printers use the following charging matrix; student printing is automatically deducted from your Print Smart allowance.
