GVPrint is a cloud based printing solution that allows GVSU students, faculty and staff to send documents to the cloud and release the print jobs at specified locations around campus.
How does GVPrint work?
Step 1: Upload your documents to the cloud using one of the following methods:
- Login to a GVSU Lab computer and print your documents to either GV Print 1 or GV Print 2 (They will be listed as printers)
- OR send an email with the document as an attachment from a GVSU email account to email@example.com
- OR Login to gvprint.gvsu.edu with your GVSU network credentials and upload documents to the cloud.
Step 2: Release your documents
- Locate a print release station. More print stations are coming soon!
- Scan your GVSU ID card or enter your network credentials.
- Release documents you wish to print.
GVPrint Limit Rules
- Per job limit per student – 40 printed/copied pages (if duplexed, 20 physical sheets)
- Per semester limit per student – 500 printed/copied pages (if duplexed, 250 physical sheets)
- Printers that do not have a GVPrint Print Release station or printers in teaching classroom do not have print limits.
- The GVPrint Release Stations will show the tracking of the pages based on a cost model.
- The cost model will show each student account with $5.00 to begin the semester to represent 500 pages per semester.
- Note that this does not mean that printing costs .01 cent per printed page, it is just a method of tracking the printed pages.
- You cannot add money to the system to increase your page limit.
- You will not receive a refund if you do not print all 500 pages.
- The cost per job will show on the GVPrint system before you release a job and will also show your total balance
- To see your balance of Cost/Pages left to print at any time, you may login to GVPrint at https://gvprint.gvsu.edu/myprintcenter/.
- The documents on the cloud are erased if not printed within 24 hours.
- You are not able to adjust format settings on the printer. To adjust format settings, print to a pdf file, then print the pdf file with GV Print.
- If you wish to send documents from a non-GVSU email address, follow the same directions as above and you will receive a reply from firstname.lastname@example.org that will allow you to register your email.
