Printing for Students


GoPrint provides TC students with free and paid printing options. GoPrint allows students to redirect print jobs and check their balances. It requires a UNI login to authenticate the print job, thus preventing theft of your printing funds. Printing funds are allocated into the following Purses:

  • Semester Allowance Purse
  • Pay 5 Cents Per Page Purse
  • Current Semester 1600 Page Allowance Purse
  • Current Semester 800 Page Allowance Purse

Unused money in any Allowance printing purse is NOT rolled over to the following semester. Only funds in the Pay 5 Cents Per Page Purse are retained after each semester ends.

Semester Allowance Purse

On the first day of each semester, $16 is added to each student’s Teachers College GoPrint Semester Allowance Purse. This allows students to print out 320 pages per semester.

Additional Printing

For an additional fee, a student can purchase extended printing purses or add to their existing Pay 5 Cents Per Page Purse. All additional printing credits are purchased through GoPrint. Please note that GoPrint can only be accessed on the TC Portal while on the TC Network.
