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.

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)

Color prints

  • $0.10/page (100 pages/semester)
  • $0.12/duplex (up to 166 pages/semester)

How do I print from my laptop?

To print wirelessly from your laptop, you will need to install the PaperCut Mobility Print app.  Follow the instructions from the link below to install the "Find Me Printers" on your laptop.  

PaperCut Mobility Print Setup

With the "Find Me Printers", you can print your document and then go to any student copier to swipe your access badge and release the document.  (If you have not registered your badge with the copiers, instructions are available at each copier.)

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. Cards can be purchased online or from the Library. Once this card is redeemed on, you will have additional funds added to your account.

How do I login to my PaperCut account?

When you sign in to a computer on campus, a pop-up box will appear to show your current print balance. Printing balances can also be checked at

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 or in the Library on the second floor. Payments may be made by cash, check, debit/credit card. For questions, call Student Accounts at 402.552.6188.

After 4:30 p.m. you may purchase additional credits on-line through the College payment page following the steps below:

  2. Click the Make a Payment link.
  3. Click View Details next to the Paper Cut card option from the selection provided.
  4. Fill in Student Name and click Add to Basket.
  5. Click Checkout.
  6. 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”).

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 reset your "free" balance in PaperCut to $10.  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.
