The PaperCut quota is provided at no cost to each undergraduate and graduate student per semester, reflecting the amounts shown below. You can use your quota to print or plot!

PaperCut Quotas and Rates

For students this quota is equivalent to 510 black-and-white printed pages or 25.5 square feet of plotting. To encourage saving paper and toner, double-sided (duplex) black-and-white print jobs are charged at half the cost.

*Plotting charges are calculated on a square-foot basis of printed area.

User Status PaperCut Quota B&W Prints Over Quota Color Prints Over Quota Plots
Undergraduate and Graduate Students $25.50 $0.05/page (TigerStripe) $0.10/page (TigerStripe) $1.00/ft.2
Employee/Faculty N/A $0.05/page (TigerStripe) $0.10/page (TigerStripe) $1.00/ft.2


Plots may be submitted to the Job Ticketing system and can be printed at various sizes up to a maximum of 36 inches in any one direction and practically unlimited in the other direction.

All university affiliated users may submit jobs to Job Ticketing system. Submitting to this system will allow you to attach a file of your job, which our IT technicians at CCIT Printing and Plotting will then use to release the job manually. You may also include information in this ticket on what you want the size of your job to be, and the technicians will size it up for you to that size (or as close as possible).

When released, the job will then be charged to your Papercut quota. Once this has run out, jobs will be charged to TigerStripe. Employees can specify under "additional instructions" in their ticket if they wish to charge the plot departmentally.

Note that this replaces the old plot queues for CCITPlotter and CCITDeptPlotter. Contact CCIT Printing and Plotting if you have any questions about how to use Job Ticketing.
