PLFSOM Student Guides: PaperCut

This guide is designed to provide Medical Students with direct access to critical materials.

$50.00 Library Credit

On September 1st and Jan. 1st at the start of each semester, every student is automatically has a $50.00 credit added their library PaperCut account. 

  • In order to automatically receive this credit, a student needs to have an existing PaperCut account. 
  • If a student creates a PaperCut account after the first day of the semester, he/she will need to notify the library staff in order to receive his/her $50.00 credit after Sept. 1st or Jan. 1st. Money in the student's PaperCut account may be used to pay for any library service, library fine, or library fee. 
  • Students who have never created PaperCut accounts will lose the ability to claim their $50.00 for a semester on the day after the semester ends.



  • TTUHSCEP students' PaperCut accounts are automatically replenished with $50.00 on the fixed calendar dates (not academic semester date) of September 1st and Jan. 1st.
  • You can also self-service transfer credit from your PaperCut account to another user with the built-in Transfer feature.
  • PaperCut accounts can be used to directly pay for color and B & W printing.
  • PaperCut accounts can be indirectly used to pay for any other library service including overdue book fines, lost book fees, 3D prints, poster printing, RUSH interlibrary loan requests, document delivery services, mediated searches, etc. (just ask to have a staff member at a library desk to process the transaction for you).

  2. Login to a library computer using your eRaider account.
  3. Send something to be printed.

Credit Surplus

  • PaperCut accounts are not "savings accounts," and balances are non-refundable.
  • The $50.00 credit is only awarded to PaperCut accounts that exist.
  • PaperCut balances may be transferred to other students.
  • Examples:
    • A  balance of $0.00 on Sept. 1st will become a new balance of $50.00.

    • A balance of $10.00 on Sept. 1st will become a new balance of $60.00.

    • A balance of $50.00 on Sept. 1st will become a balance of $100.00.

    • A balance of $75.00 on Sept. 1st will become a balance of $125.00.

    • A balance of $75.00 will become a balance of $0.00 on Sept. 1st if the student is no longer a student on Sept. 1st and the account has been inactive for a year. (exception: Account balances will remain for students who graduate and continue as residents at TTUHSC EP).
