Student Printing Software Installation

Description

Indiana State University has provided thirty-one (31) Print Release Stations for student printing. To use the printers, students need to install the printing software on their laptop. Once the software is installed, two new printers appear in the printer list, "Student_BW" and "Student_Color". Files can be sent to these printers in the same way as standard printers, however print jobs will be held in the queue until the student visits one of the thirty-one (31) Print Release Stations and instructs the machine to print the job.

How to Use the Printers From your laptop

Install the software on your laptop

Print a document or file from your laptop as normal. In the dialog box that opens, select either the "Student_BW" ($0.03/page) or "Student_Color" ($0.15/page) print queue in the Printer Name drop down box. The cost will be deducted from your print account when the job is printed.

A pop-up dialog box will appear. Enter your Sycamore ID username. (Ex: asmith22, ylin14). The document or file you printed will now be in the print queue and available for printing.

Visit one of the Print Release Stations. All printers are color and black and white capable. Swipe your card located on the right side of the printer or enter your University Username and password on the printer touchscreen. A list of documents or files you have sent to the print queue (steps 2 and 3) will appear.

Select the job(s) that you want to print, verify the cost information located in the bottom left corner, and click the "Print" button. (Jobs held in the queue will be deleted automatically after 24-hours. There is no charge for any job that is not printed.)

Wait for the files to print, and remove them from the output tray.
