Circulation: Library Computer and Printing Policies

PaperCut Printing Account

Only TTUHSC students will receive a PaperCut printing account once they have logged onto a library computer. A PaperCut printing account is a money account used to pay for printing from our computers, among other fines and fees.

  • TTUHSCEP Medical, Nursing, Dental and Graduate student  accounts are automatically replenished with $400.00 on the academic semester date of June 1st. Unused PaperCut Credit does not carry over into the next academic semester and will be wiped to $0.00 on May 31st.
  • PaperCut accounts can be indirectly used to pay for any other library service including overdue book fines, 3D prints, poster printing, poster tube, etc. (just ask a staff member at a library desk to process the transaction for you).

In June of each year, every student is given a $400.00 credit in their library PaperCut account. This credit is added once the library receives an official list of enrolled students from the Registrar's Office.

  • In order to automatically receive this credit, a student needs to have an existing PaperCut account
  • Students that create their PaperCut accounts after credits have been added for the semester will need to notify library staff in order to have their accounts can be credited.
  • Money in the student's PaperCut account may be used to pay for any 3D Print, Poster Print or library overdue fine. 
  • PaperCut accounts are not "savings accounts," and balances are non-refundable.
  • PaperCut only replenishes accounts that exist.
