In Winter of 2017, we upgraded our print management system. PaperCut allows us to support printing on nearly any web capable device (phone, tablet, laptop) with enhanced reliability and more privacy.

Campus Workstations

  • Upon logging into the workstation, you will be prompted to activate your PaperCut account.
  • Enter your credentials in the pop up window
  • You are now authorized to send prints as normal. After you have activated your PaperCut account on an Evergreen computer, your credentials will be automatically carried to each campus machine that you use.
  • From any standard software like Word or Chrome, click File > Print and select the default printer option presented
  • You will receive a notification that your print job is now held in a queue for release
  • Visit a nearby release station, enter your username, and print your work
  • Unclaimed jobs are not billed against your quarterly allowance

Laptops and other Mobile Devices

Note, this method also acts as a workaround if printing directly from a lab machine does not work properly.

  • Visit while on the campus wifi, from any up to date browser
  • login with your credentials
  • Click Print From Your Own Device (found in the left-hand panel)
  • You will then be taken to a PaperCut guide of how to add a printer to the specific operating system (OS) that you are using.
    • If you would like to add a printer to a different OS, scroll down and click the link for whichever OS you are using.
  • Follow the instructions provided for your OS.
  • There are two separate printers you will have to add, TESC-DoubleSided and TESC-SingleSided. Meaning that you will have to run though those instructions for both of these printers.
    • As the names suggest, print jobs sent to these printers will automatically override any print settings and come out as double-sided or single-sided, respectively.
  • Open the application you intend to print from (e.g. Microsoft Word, Google Docs, Adobe Reader, etc.), print as you normally would and make sure you select the correct printer for your document (i.e. TESC-DoubleSided or TESC-SingleSided).
