After you determine the details of your print job and click "OK" the print job will be held by the print management system (GoPrint) until you have a chance to review the print job and determine if you want to send the job to the printer or delete the job.  The document will not be printed until you authorize it for release to the printer.

 Step 7: 

Choosing to delete a job:

If you determine you want to delete a print job or see that there are more pages than you want to print, click the box next to the print job and click the "Cancel jobs" button.  If the job is "Cancelled", no prints will be deducted from the account.  You can then choose to return to your document to determine what exactly you need to print; modify the document or selected pages to be printed and then repeat the steps to print.  

Choosing to proceed with printing:

If you want proceed with printing a document, check the box next to the print job.  Notice the calculated total number of pages to be printed in the Transaction Summary.  Select "Pay and Print" and your print job will be released to the printer and your balance will decline to reflect the prints.  Only when you "Pay and Print" does your account balance get reduced.  A reduction of 1 page for each black and white sheet printed and a reduction of 20 pages for each color sheet printed will be reflected in the balance (Note: color printing is available in the Student Technology Center labs in Fayard 126/129 and in Biol 210).

Reviewing your account periodically.

We recommend that you periodically review your account in order to be aware of your activity.  If you click on the My Account tab in the green bar, you can see an overview of your account such as your print history and all account balances for the semester.

 It is our hope that this process will give students the opportunity to choose to reduce printing waste.  This helps save money which in turn allows the Student Technology Fee dollars to be used more effectively.  The alternative is watching the money being thrown away in overflowing trash cans.
