PaperCut (Student Printing)

Student Printing Procedures Using PaperCut


Add funds to PaperCut for printing.

Beginning Summer semester 2017, Sandhills Community College will be implementing a new print solution, PaperCut, for curriculum students.  This system will allow the college to better manage print resources on campus.

Students will receive a $10.00 allotment allowing them to print 200 black and white pages per semester.  Students will also be able to add funds to their account to print additional pages when needed.  The cost of black and white printing is 5 cents per page and the cost of color printing is 15 cents per page.

Remember, student printing is only allowed in the computer labs and designated areas such as the LRC (Learning Resource Center) in Boyd Library.

How to Print

Follow the directions below to utilize the new system:

  • Click the print command in Word (or whatever software package you are using) as usual.
  • You will be prompted to log in.
    • Use the same login and password that you use for student email and Moodle.
    • If you do not know your username or password, please go to the MySCC page and click on Password Management to set up or reset your information.
    • If you do not have an account, you will not be able to print.
    • Students will be able to print the first day of the semester or within 24 hours of late registration.
