What is it?

The Responsible Printing Initiative (RPI) is an SGA/ITS cooperative designed to fairly distribute printing resources, reduce waste, and eliminate abuse.

Printing constitutes more than just paper. Printing costs cover the following:

  • Paper
  • Toner
  • Printers
  • Software
  • Servers
  • Maintenance

How does this affect me?

  • Students receive a printing allotment of 500 pages per semester to use for the term they are currently enrolled.
  • Any pages unused at the end of the semester are non-refundable and do not rollover to the next semester.
  • The 500-page semester allotment is added the first day of class for each semester.
  • Additional print funds can be purchased in 100 page increments for a non-refundable fee starting at $5.00.

How do I add print funds?

Funds can be purchased online by visiting and select Add Print Funds from the top menu.

Who pays for the 500 pages I receive each semester?

Printing supplies are funded through the Technology Access Fee (TAF) paid by students.

Where can I use my print funds?

All Technology Access Fee (TAF) funded printers. These are available in TAF Computer Labs and can been since on the Computer Labs/Smart Classrooms website.
