How much does printing cost? A single page (one side) of a black & white printout costs 1 print credit. A single color page (one side) printout costs 5 print credits. Students receive 225 print credits per term.
How do I know how many print credits I have? Log in to the WOU Portal and your balance will be displayed on your homepage.
How do I buy more print credits? Purchase additional credits through WolfWeb under the Student Menu. They start at 50 credits for $2.50 and go up from there. When you buy additional credits they are immediately available for use.
What if I don’t use all of my print credits? Whatever credits you don’t use roll over to the next term. However, accounts are wiped clean before each Fall term begins, and everyone starts again with 225 print credits.

–> Buying snacks from the Info Desk in the library.
–> Contributing to the Penny Drive, also at the Info Desk.
–> Giving non-perishable food items – place in donation boxes throughout the library.
