We are now implementing a soft-rollout of GoPrint starting the fall 2013 term. This means we won’t charge for printing, but we will be installing and using GoPrint in all campus computer labs. Students and instructors will need to log in to GoPrint to release (or cancel) their print jobs. Instructions for both credit and non-credit students are available below. Non-students have the ability to create their own GoPrint account so they can print without a student account.

View / download GoPrint Credit and GoPrint Non-Credit.

The two manuals below show how to use the GoPrint pop-up dialogue box and how to open the GoPrint application manually. Using one of these two methods, students should be able to print.
