Printing Allowances

Part of the student technology fee (STF) at the IU School of Medicine–Indianapolis campus is used to offset students’ printing costs. Third and fourth year students receive an allotment of 200 pages each. You can use your Crimson Card  (student ID) to print for free in the Medical Library and in MS016A.

When your subsidy is almost exhausted, notify Card Services to switch to your own funds. (The switch-over doesn’t happen automatically until you hit zero, and when it does, you could lose printing capability until the next morning.)

Allotment credits are given based on the student’s credit hours enrolled. This is ultimately what determines the amount of STF funds they pay.

The allotment amounts can be seen on the Print Knowledge Base page.

Fully enrolled and grad students get 26 credits a semester with each credit allowing for 25 BW pages or 4 color pages.

4+ class credits gets 26 print credits = 650 BW or 104 Color
