Printing on Campus -- Important
Students have access to printing, copying, and scanning in the Academic Skills Center and Library.
Copy Cost - All students are allotted a $10.00 copy credit at the beginning of each semester.
The cost for copier usage is:

  • Scanning - Free
  • Black and White - $0.05/page side
  • Color - $0.15/page side

Hole punching and stapling is built into the copiers and is available at no additional charge. A current student ID or a valid UHC email account is required for printing. Double-sided printing is considered two pages.

Paying for Copier Usage
During registration and throughout the semester, the Office of Admissions issues identification cards for students. This card is also utilized as the student’s debit card for Bayou Bucks and Hurricane Cash. Hurricane Cash will be used to pay for copier usage on campus.
