Dallas County Community College students will notice a difference
when they make photocopies or print information beginning with the
summer I semester: prices are dropping, from the current rate of 10
cents per page to a cost of 5 cents per page. They also will discover
that new laser printers in college computer labs, as well as photocopy
machines, will be connected through a common online payment station for
easier payment and fast copies.
The new pay-per-print system replaces copy cards that students currently use.
students have purchased and used copy cards for photocopies, they also
must pay for printing by the page in open computer labs at all colleges
in the system. Existing copy cards will not work with the new online
system, so all students are advised to spend their copy card balances by
June 5, 2005. No balance transfers or refunds will be issued on
current copy cards.
Students also should be aware that the new
online pay-per-print system will accept only paper money and no coins.
The new online accounts will be college-specific; in other words,
students who access pay-per-print services at multiple colleges in DCCC
will create an account at each college.
Here’s how the new online pay-per-print system works:
