Each semester (Fall, Spring, Summer) NWTC students currently enrolled in classes receive a “credit” of $20 in their print account about 1 week before the semester start date. Balances do NOT carry over from semester to semester.
J-Session does not provide a new print balance unless you were not enrolled in classes for Fall. Existing students should use the remaining Fall semester print balance for J-Session printing. The new balance will come 1 week before the Spring semester start.
Students enrolled in non-credit classes and community members may purchase a print card for $2.00 that is good for three months The card allows individuals to log in independently and print.

Balances are shown next to your name on the upper left corner of the print queue when you are logged into a college printer. You can also check your balance remotely by going to https://paypal.nwtc.edu.
When students' printing account balances reach $5.00, an email is sent warning of the low balance.
When the account has $0.00 balance, another email is sent stating that nothing will print until funds are added.
You can add more funds to your print account by going to https://paypal.nwtc.edu and clicking on budget recharge in the lower left corner. The page will redirect to NWTC's PayPal account.
You can also add money to your printing account by using the link provided in your my.NWTC account. Log in to your my.NWTC and click on the Add to my Print Balance link.
If you still have funds in your print balance at the end of the semester, you will not receive a refund and your funds will not carry over to the next semester. If you are taking classes the next semester, you will receive $20 in your account 1 week before the semester start date.
You can continue to use your print account as long as you are a student or until your account has been inactive for three terms - about one year.
Reimbursement for Bad Prints
If the printer does not work properly, you may request a reimbursement for the affected pages. Eligible defects include toner smears or streaks, low toner, jammed paper, printer failure, or other printer-caused defects (not editing and formatting mistakes).
