How to Print at a Pay-To-Print Location

Several computer labs on campus have pay-to-print printers in them that allow students to pay for printing using their Buffalo State ID card. Students are charged $0.02 per page for black and white prints and $0.50 per page for color prints. Follow these steps to print in one of these locations:

1. Open the file that you want to print and go to File > Print (or press Control + P on your keyboard).
2. Choose the printer from the Printer drop-down (it should default to the printer in the lab).
