EGCC Printing Policy FAQ

Why does EGCC have a printing policy?

To reduce the waste of paper, ink, toner and maintenance costs incurred by excessive and unauthorized printing. By reducing the waste of resources we are also contributing to a more friendly and responsible environment.

For every black and white page you print, $0.05 cents will be deducted from your printing account. For every page you print in color, $0.35 cents will be deducted from your account.


Do my credits carry over to the next semester if I don't use them all?



How do I check my account balance?
