Helpful Printing Tips

  • Make sure you are printing the correct document.
  • Be sure you print to the correct print queue:
    • ASU-STUDENT-PRINT-BW for black & white printing
    • ASU-STUDENT-PRINT-COLOR for color printing
  • Your card is debited as soon as you release the job to the printer. Once you have released the wrong document, there is no way to stop it from printing and debiting your card.
  • If you submit a document for printing and decide later that you no longer wish to print it, simply leave the document in the print queue. Any document left in the print queue longer than one hour will be deleted automatically.
