GVSU Print Limit Rules and Policies


  • The PRINT ALL, within the print release software, has been disabled so that all jobs will not print as you must now release them individually
  • Print limits stay the same
    • Job limit per student = 40 printed/copied pages (if duplex, 20 physical sheets)
    • Semester limit per student = 500 printed/copied pages (if duplexed, 250 physical sheets)
  • Pages will be tracked at $.05 for a single sided print and $0.10 a double sided print, starting with $25 per semester of FREE printing

  • All print pages (free and purchased) will be tracked at $.05 for each printed side,  which is the calculated cost of paper, toner, tracking costs as well as printer amortization
  • Both the free cost of print pages as well as the purchased cost of print pages will show as the total available to a student 
  • Purchased print pages remain with the life of the student account and do not expire.  Remaining funds after graduation or after a student leaves will not be credited back to the student.
