Yukon College printing systems:

Yukon College students are allocated $40 worth of printing each term. All printing is done through PaperCut, a print management software.

You will be prompted to set up your PaperCut account the first time you log onto a lab computer. Use your computer account username and password to log into your PaperCut account.

Each time you login on a lab computer, a small pop-up window will appear displaying your current balance. Clicking the Details link on this window will bring up a website that will let you see more detailed information about your PaperCut account.

Through this link, you will also be able to access and you’re your Transaction History and Recent Print Jobs, as well as a Transfer feature that enables the user to transfer an amount to another user.

Printing cost:

Black and white printing costs $0.10 per page, with a discount of 50% for double-sided printing. For example, a five-page document printed single-sided will use $0.50 of your printing allocation.  A five-page document printed double-sided will use $0.25 of your printing allocation.

Large print jobs (more than 20 pages) that are selected to print single-sided will prompt you to save printing costs by printing double-sided.

Adding funds:

If you run out of PaperCut funds before the term is over, you may purchase a top-up from the Bookstore. After you’ve paid at the Bookstore go to IT Services in the library and show the staff there your receipt so they can add the funds to your PaperCut account.
