About the Responsible Printing Initiative
To keep printing costs for students as low as possible and to reduce waste, Information Technology Services (ITS) at NDSU has installed a print-management system in all public computer labs, the campus libraries, and some departmental labs. Managed printing is funded jointly by ITS and the Technology Fee Advisory Committee.
Bison Cards are needed in order to print in NDSU’s public computer labs. Each semester, NDSU students will be able to print a fixed number of pages at no charge (a “printing allocation”). Once this allocation is expended, additional printing will be charged to the student’s Bison Bucks account at 5 cents per page for black and white printing.
Tri-College students who are taking classes at NDSU may purchase a Bison Bucks card from the NDSU Bison Card Center in the Memorial Union in order to pay for their printing. The card costs five dollars plus the amount deposited to the account.
Library guest patrons who are not affiliated with NDSU and do not have a Bison Card may purchase a card at the main Library to pay for their printing.
If you need immediate help with printing issues, please visit the ITS Help Desk (IACC 150), e-mail NDSU.HelpDesk@ndsu.edu, or call 231-8685 (option 1).
