On Jan. 1 and July 1 of each year, Rutgers allocates $30 for printing to every person with a NetID. After a person sends a document to a public printer on campus from a computer lab or via RUWireless printing, they swipe their Rutgers ID card at a print release station adjacent to the printer. The release station is a compact computer with a touch screen monitor and a card reader.
Once they swipe their ID card, their pending print jobs will appear on the screen, and they can choose which jobs to print or delete. The cost of printing is debited from their balance.
Color printing is 25 cents per sheet. Black-and-white printing is 4 cents per sheet. If a person's print balance is depleted before the university replenishes the funds, the printing system will debit the person's RUExpress account.
