Printing

 

As part of ITS-AC's ongoing commitment to innovation we are piloting a new program that will allow you to print from your personal laptop from anywhere on campus to the McCoy 338 lab. Please take advantage of this new service and let us know how we can improve it by filling out a comment card at the McCoy Lab.

Coming Soon

 

Printing in our Open Computer Labs is free for all Texas State University Students currently enrolled with an active username. A per semester limit is set for each student of 2500 pages. Extensions to this limitation are determined on a case by case basis. To request an extension please send an email to ITSACLabs@txstate.edu.

Our print system is intended to be a resource for students to complete classwork only. While we do not monitor the types of jobs printed in a given semester, request for extensions beyond the standard limitation will include a review of past jobs printed. Pages printed for departments or organizations using lab resources will result in a denial of printing extentions.
