Student Printing/Copying/Scanning - PaperCut  Mobility

Installing PaperCut Mobility Print:  Go to to download PaperCut Mobility Printing and follow prompts to install PaperCut on your device.

Once PaperCut Mobility Print software is installed, you can send print jobs to the student printers from your laptop, tablet, or smart phone when connected to the ACPHS Secure Wireless network.  If you have any problems with or questions about installing the system on your laptop or smart device contact the IT Services Support Center and Help Desk.


  • If using your own device choose PAPERCUT Mobility Color or PAPERCUT Mobility BW.

Paying for Printing & Copying

Fall and Spring Semesters: At the beginning of each semester, students receive a $12.50 credit on the PaperCut Student Printing System to be used during the Fall and Spring Semester. Students who use up their allotted $12.50 before the end of a semester can continue to print and will be billed by Student Accounts on a monthly basis.  Printing credits have no dollar value other than for printing and leftover funds will not carry over to the next semester.   NOTE:  P4 Students will receive their Fall printing credit at the start of Module A and their Spring printing credit at the start of Module F.

Summer Sessions:  Students can print as needed and will be billed monthly for any printing completed outside of the Fall and Spring Semesters.   

 Printing/Copying Charges:

  Single-sided, Black & White   $0.10  
  Double-sided, Black & White     $0.15
  Single-sided, Color    $0.25
  Double-sided Color   $0.40

Note: When your print job has a combination of both color and black & white pages, the system will charge your account accordingly.

Printing Balance:  Students can find their PaperCut printing balance by logging into this website with their ACPHS username/password.

Responsible Printing Practices

Tips for Responsible Printing

  • Rather than print, use the functionality of your laptop, tablet, or smart phone to view, manage, edit and organize documents
  • Only print the pages you need, when you need them
  • Only print what you need for your own personal use
  • Plan ahead and print larger documents during less busy times in the Library
  • Always select double-sided printing
  • Print in color only when necessary
  • Do not print multiple chapters from e-books as this may be a violation of copyright
  • Print multiple PowerPoint slides on one page:
    • Under Print Settings, you can change the print layout to Handouts and designate the number of slides (up to 9) you want to appear on each page
  • Print multiple pages per sheet: 
    • After you select the printer, go to Printer Properties, then Layout.  From there you can select multiple pages per sheet.  This works well for PowerPoint slides that are created as a PDF


Students may photocopy in both black & white and color using the student printers in the Student Center Atrium and the Library.  The costs for photocopying are the same as for printing. 


Scanning at no charge may be done at the student printers in the Student Center Atrium and the Library.


Faxes may be sent to and from the Library. To send a document to a fax number within the United States please ask a staff member for assistance or use Ask Us.  Faxing services to international numbers are not available.
