Your ePrint quota

The ePrint quota is designed to help ePrint users recognize the cost and value of the service, and to encourage reasonable, sustainable printing habits.

Allocations for students

Duke students receive an allocation of $32 per semester in black-and-white laser printing at OIT's ePrint stations in libraries, computer labs and public spaces. If your balance falls below $9, you can request an increase of $8 to your printing allocation. Undergraduate students may request this increase only once per semester. Note: If you exhaust your allocation, your print jobs will be charged to your FLEX account.

Non-student allocations

Faculty and staff receive free printing. Visitors to Duke facilities who lack an ID card can purchase public print/copy cards from campus libraries and add value to those cards in order to be able to use the ePrint system.

How printing is charged

All documents sent to the ePrint-OIT and ePrint-OIT (2-sided) print queues will be charged at $0.04/page for single-sided and $0.02/page for double-sided printing (minimum cost $0.04). The default free allocation and increase provides up to 1,000 pages of free double-sided printing per semester. Print double-sided to maximize your print allocation and reduce the impact on our environment!

Charges for black & white print jobs that are unacceptable in quality (low toner, smudging, paper jam, etc.) will be refunded on request. Contact the OIT Service Desk to place a refund request.

Color laser printers in Duke's libraries and campus locations charge $0.15 for color printing and copying, $0.06 for black/white printing and copying, and $0.02 for scan to email - all directly to FLEX.

Medical and Academic Quota Exemptions

Students with a need to print more than the standard allocation for exceptional academic or medical purposes may request an exemption from the quota policy.  These requests are reviewed on a case-by-case basis.
