How to Use PaperCut for Printing on Campus

Printing is now easier with PaperCut. Creating an account is easy. Just follow the instructions below to set up your account.


JCCC's PaperCut program supports sustainable print management on campus. In the Billington Library and the computer labs, you'll need to log in to the PaperCut system before sending documents to the printer. When you've reached your quota, you can purchase additional quantities using a pre-paid print card or by moving money to your Paper Cut account from your JCCC ID card or your personal credit/debit card.
