- Charges for printing beyond the quotas in either environment will be billed directly to your University student account in the first weeks of the following term and will appear on your tuition statement.
- Payment may be made in 3 ways:
- In person at the Cashier's Office
- By mail
- Online via Wolverine Access
- If you are graduating, you should still get the bill and be able to pay it using one of the 3 means mentioned above. The Financial Aid Office Web site has a link to a web page that explains how to make payments.
- If there is a mechanical or technical problem which prevents you from receiving your printout and you are charged for the print job, please alert an IT consultant or submit a work request within four (4) hours of the problem occurring if you expect to receive reimbursement.
If you send a work request, provide a detailed description of the problem:
- What printer was involved
- What time the problem occurred
- What you were printing (file type)
- What program you were using to print (Word, Acrobat, etc.)
- Windows or Mac OSX version
- Why you feel you should be reimbursed (be sure to also indicate if you received no actual printout (or partial printout) of the print job but were charged anyway).
Any printouts associated with the problem (including error pages) must be presented to LawIT so that the issue can be investigated in a timely manner and further problems can be prevented.
- Unused printing allowance is not rolled over to the next term.
There is one (1) resume printing workstation with an attached printer (without paper) where you can print with your own paper and not be charged. Location: Library, in the Sub-3 Computer Lab. Lexis/Westlaw printing
Students are not charged for Lexis/Westlaw printing as long as the Lexis/Westlaw print-outs are directed to the designated Lexis/Westlaw printers
. However, please note that if you direct your Lexis/Westlaw print-outs to the Law School's regular networked duplex printers, you will
be charged. If the Lexis/Westlaw printers are out of order in the Sub-3 computer lab, you should re-direct your Lexis/Westlaw print jobs to the Lexis/Westlaw printers on Sub-2 of the Law Library or in the Reading Room alcove (not to the regular networked student printers) in order to avoid being charged for those printing sessions.Duplex printing
All designated student printers at the Law School are duplex
printers by default (to permit double-sided printing) so that you can save paper and money. However, you can manually select single-sided printing for any print job by changing the default settings in the print window.Printing from Journal, Clinic, and Student Organization printers
Clinics, journals, and organizations are responsible for acquiring and controlling their own paper usage and should print clinic, journal, or organization materials to clinic, journal, or organization-designated printers only.Sites printers
There are two (2) Sites printers located in the Law School (one in the alcove leading to the lower student commons and the other in the computer lab). The Sites printers print single-sided by default. Printing directed to the Sites printers will be charged from your 400-pg ITS printing quota, not from your Law School printing quota.
The Law School printer installation script does not install the Sites printers. Instead you must use mPrint
to print to the Sites printers.Tips to conserve paper and your printing quota
- Making changes or corrections: Spell-check the document(s) and print only the pages needed by selecting the page range prior to printing.
- Often blank pages will be included at the end of printouts from Web sites. Use the Print Preview feature in your browser to check the number of pages in your print job prior to printing and print only the page range necessary in order to eliminate the additional pages.
- You will get more for your money in the Law School if you print duplex (double-sided). A double-sided page counts as one page within your allowance. Each page you print after your quota costs 3 cents regardless of whether it is duplex or single-sided. So you can print two pages for the price of one if you print duplex.
- You are charged per page, no matter how many slides or pages are printed on a sheet of paper. This means that six slides or two pages per page-side would still only be charged for one page.
