Student Allowance for Law Students

For Law students, at the beginning of Fall and Spring semesters and Summer term, the ACCESS office will reset each user's SmartPrint account and replenish it with a SmartPrint free-printing allowance. Left over funds from the allowance do not carry-over into the next term.

Student Allowance for all other non-Law Students

Undergraduate and Graduate students who are not in the Law School  will receive their SmartPrint free-printing allowance at the beginning of Fall Quarter. These funds are for the entire school year (not just the quarter). Left over funds from the allowance do not carry-over into the next year or to the Summer.

Printing Costs

There is a per page cost associated with each page printed. The total cost of the print job is deducted from your SmartPrint allowance at the time you release your print job at the Release Station. When the free-print allowance is depleted, you may use funds from your FLEX account to pay for any additional print jobs. The balances of your SmartPrint and FLEX accounts are displayed at the Release Station when you press the Account button after swiping your ACCESS card. You may also review your available printing balance within the SmartPrint Print Center.

Current SmartPrint Allowance

Law School Students: $40 per semester
Graduate Students: $48 per school year ($16/quarter); $16 summer session
