Every Cascadia student receives a standard printing allocation of $24.00 which equates to approximately 600 black-and-white (at .04 per page) or 120 color pages (at .20 per page). If you use up your allocation, you can buy additional printing in Kodiak Corner.
In order to use your printing allowance, you must be logged in on a Cascadia computer (printing from personal devices is not currently available). In order to use a Cascadia computer, you must first create your Cascadia Network Account. If you don't have a Cascadia Network account, you can create one by visiting this website. If you need additional assistance in creating your account, you can get assistance in the Open Learning Center or at the Information Services Helpdesk.
Printers for student use can be found in the Open Learning Center, the Math and Writing Center, most campus computer labs and all of the Student Breakouts on campus. When you log into a PC, Cascadia's systems automatically detect where the closest printer to you is located and sets that printer as your default printer. Most student printers are black and white print only and default to two-sided printing. The Open Learning Center has a large color printer that is available for student use.
