Pay for Print

Pay for Print

Information Technology has implemented a system to monitor all networked printers in an effort to track and report on campus printing. This is to limit the amount of unecessary printing and wasted paper. Our goal is to create a solution that will accommodate the majority of students, as well as honoring St. Lawrence's Green Initiative.
