This past fall semester the tech fee paid up to $20 for every student to print. This covered all printing for 98.5% of students who printing with only 14 students having to pay anything. That's exactly the goal of including a print credit funded by the tech fee: to pay for almost all printing while not covering unlimited printing. When we covered unlimited printing in the past we had a handful of abusers who drove up costs for everyone.
Next fall, printing will go up one cent per black and white page and the print credit will go up to $25 per semester. We hope to have nearly identical results. (If you do the math, the print credit is going up just a little more than the cost of printing.)
