pay-to-print lab printing services - students

clarion uniprint system - Students

PennWest Clarion utilizes a cost-recovery printing system in its open computer labs, some discipline specific labs.

The lab print system will automatically debit the Eagle Dollars on your Eagle Card prior to printing.

All full and part time students have a $5 credit applied to their Eagle Card for use with the print system for the fall/spring semester; a $2 credit is applied for summer semesters.  This credit is automatically applied to your Eagle Card; you do not have to open an Eagle Dollars account to begin using your free printing credit.  If you use all of the credit and would like to add additional funds to your card for printing, please see the Eagle Dollars page.
