Unusable Pages

Number of Pages

First, be very certain of what you are printing before you click on print. You are responsible for the pages printed on your account.


You cannot reprint pages with errors without using your account. Please be sure to proof your work prior to printing a final copy.

Charging Errors

Visit the ITS Help Desk in room K130 or the circulation desk in the Library (A). You can fill out an adjustment form to request a credit your account. Be sure to remember the date and time the printing happened so we can verify this on your account.

Printing Errors

At most locations, once a job is accepted and released to the printer there in nothing that can be done. If you are in the Community Computing Center (K130) or in the Libraries (Attleboro, Fall River, and New Bedford), the print job is first sent to a release station before charges are incurred and may still be canceled.
