Beginning December 1, 2017 pricing will change for PAWPrint managed print services. Printers will be divided into four categories (or "Tiers"). Each printer in the fleet has been designated a Tier number based on print volume. The lowest print volume printers are designated Tier 1, with the highest volume designated Tier 4.

Faculty and staff may view the current active PAWPrint Managed Printer Services list at this link. This link will always have the most up-to-date information.
A list is also available at the PAWPrint Printer Tiers page.
At this time, pricing for student printing is under discussion. Printers in common areas such as E-classrooms will be reviewed for print volume and adjusted as necessary to minimize student impact.
As Faculty/Staff, printing to a Tier 3 or Tier 4 printer will result in no increased charge or a slightly reduced charge. Printing to a Tier 1 or Tier 2 printer may become more expensive. It is at the discretion of departments or organizations if they wish to adjust print behavior to focus printing to one specific printer in their area; by increasing print volume, that printer will be adjusted to a higher tier (resulting in lower costs). If you wish to obtain some historical reports to help guide decisions about print usage, please contact the IT Help Desk at (828) 227 7487 or online at the IT Help Self-Service portal for assistance.
