This section explains print release stations and how they are used in the college’s printing process.
Print release stations are near or on public printers. When you print a job, rather than the job going into a printer’s queue, it goes to a release station queue where it will be stored for up to 24 hours. If the job is not released to a printer during that time, the job will be deleted. If the job is deleted, your account will not be charged.
After you log on at a print release station, verify the job to ensure you are printing the intended document(s) and release it. Once released, the job enters that printer’s queue. Your account will be charged at this point and the job will be produced at that printer.
Faculty & Staff
Faculty and staff only need to use release stations at public printers. (Department machines do not have release stations.) No charge is incurred.
After printing to a public printer, you must log on at a print release station, verify the job to ensure you are printing the intended document(s) and release it. Once released, the job enters that printer’s queue. Your job will be produced at that printer.
