Printing on Campus
In an effort to reduce environmental and financial costs associated with excessive printing, Clarkson College launched PaperCut in summer 2016. This online print and copier management solution provides each student at Clarkson College with an account that manages your total print jobs, account balance and more.
Why is Clarkson College implementing PaperCut?
In a College-wide effort to reduce supply costs and minimize the impact on the environment, Clarkson College implemented PaperCut in summer 2016. All students printing on campus will utilize the service.
How does PaperCut work?
Your PaperCut account will start each semester with a $10 balance. The following cost breakdown shows how many sheets you can print with $10.
Black & White
- $0.05/page (200 pages/semester)
- $0.06/duplex (up to 332 pages/semester)
- $0.10/page (100 pages/semester)
- $0.12/duplex (up to 166 pages/semester)
What happens when I run out of printing credits?
If you use all of the $10 credit, you can purchase a PaperCut print card for $10 from the Student Services Suite during business hours. After hours, cards can be purchased from the Library. Once this card is redeemed on PaperCut.clarksoncollege.edu, you will have additional funds added to your account.

How do I login to my PaperCut account?

After entering your username and password, an additional pop-up box will appear to show your current print balance as seen here. Printing balances can also be checked at papercut.clarksoncollege.edu.
What happens if I don’t have enough credits to print a particular job?
If your print job requires more credits than you currently have in your account, a warning message will pop up and you will be required to purchase more credits before the job will print. These can be purchased from the Student Services Suite or Library.
How do I purchase additional credits for printing on campus?
Additional credits may be purchased during business hours (7:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.) in the Student Services Suite located on the first floor of the main building. Payments may be made by cash, check, debit/credit card. For questions, call Student Accounts at 402.552.2749.
After 4:30 PM you may purchase additional credits on-line through the College payment page following the steps below:
- Visit the Current Student section.
- Click the Make a Payment link.
- Select the PaperCut card option from the Payment Information dropdown.
- Fill out the required Student & Cardholder Information fields.
- Click Continue.
- Enter credit card information in pop-up window (If you have a pop-up blocker on, select “always allow pop-ups from this website” then click “retry”)
- Email receipt to Library@clarksoncollege.edu
- Pick up Paper-Cut card in the Library, located on the second floor of the main College building.
A lost card cannot be replaced; a new card must be purchased.
If I don’t spend all of my credits in one semester, will they transfer over to the next semester?
At the start of each semester, the College will deposit $10 into your PaperCut account. If you do not use all $10, the remaining balance will not transfer over the following semester.
If you purchased additional credits via a PaperCut Print Card, these funds will carry over each consecutive year that you are a student.
If I don’t spend all of my printing funds, can I be refunded for the balance?
Refunds will not be issued for unused credits.
I didn’t know about the changes to the Clarkson College printing policy. How were students notified regarding this change?
Clarkson College students received e-mails on April 19, 2016 and May 13, 2016 providing information regarding PaperCut. On May 16, 2016, a message was posted in the Online Campus. For new students, information was communicated at New Student Orientation on May 13, 2016.
