Print stations on Arizona State’s campus will now allow students to print on a credit, rather than requiring students to pay via prepaid debit.
The university’s new Print Anywhere stations enable students and faculty to swipe their standard Arizona State ID card, the Sun Card, or the university’s combined Pitchfork ID/debit MasterCard. ASU’s Pitchfork ID Card features a dual mag stripe, with the black stripe used for printing and the second, gold color stripe used for the student’s bank account.
All print jobs at these stations will be charged to the user’s My ASU account listed under the finances section. Charges made at the Print Anywhere stations can be paid at the user’s convenience using either a debit or credit card within 30 days, before accumulating late fees.
The Print Anywhere program allows for printing, copying, and scanning on any one of the 70 public printers located on Arizona State’s campus. The program also enables students and faculty to send and print documents from their personal laptop to any Print Anywhere printer Log in using your basic Sun Card, Pitchfork ID Card, or a Print Anywhere Guest Card
The new stations will also offer guest access via a separate, visitor credential. For campus visitors who do not maintain a valid My ASU account or ASURITE User ID, Print Anywhere guest cards can be purchased at the university bookstore. Guest cards can be used at any of the print stations just as the university ID cards are used.
University officials suggest that in eliminating mandatory pre-paid services, students will be more inclined to utilize the Print Anywhere locations around campus.
