PaperCut is WSC’s campus-wide printing system. PaperCut facilitates streamlined printing on campus and accommodates printing from personal devices, including Macs, iPads, iPhones, Windows devices, and Android devices. Papercut is based on a pay-to-print model, but NATS has allocated a substantial "pre-paid" printing credit to every student based on actual cost to produce a print.

To print on campus with a campus computer there is nothing to install. PaperCut software is available automatically when you login. However, there is a one-time setup for each personal device you want to print from.

1. After PaperCut has been installed on your device and you are ready to send a print job, select a printer: either a FollowMe queue, enabling the option to print at several different locations; or a specific printer with Direct Print (where available).\

2. Next, select which account you want to print from. Every office computer has a direct print queue to all copiers and printers in the same building.

Note: Faculty/Staff are billed to budget codes by user, not by device.

Note: Students have a personal account with a Papercut pre-paid semester credit ($50/semester)

3. The cost of each print job will be subtracted from that credit.

Note: Faculty/Staff also enrolled as students have their pre-paid budget assigned to their Faculty/Staff account.

Note: If you’re a student working for an office on campus and they’ve enabled using your Cat Card for office work, you can print to a shared account when printing for your job. 

4. Last, you go to the printer/copier and either release your print job to be printed if you selected a FollowMe queue or pick up your print job if you used Direct Print.
