Starting Fall Semester 2012 a new feature will be added to your NC State ID card. You will have the ability to pay for computer print outs using your NC State ID card.
All NC State students must obtain a new NC State ID Card from the Mansfield Campus Recreation Center to take advantage of the Pay-to-Print feature. The ID cards will function like a debit card and you will be able to deposit money into your account.
Printing from NC State Computers
A new NC State ID card is required to print from a NC State computer. A 7¢ fee per black & white page (VCMT & CRMJ students - 25¢ fee per color printed page) will be charged to help cover the rising costs of printing. All computer labs will accept your NC State ID for payment.
Wireless Printing is availible for personal Windows or Macintosh laptops.
Students Please Note: You may only print wireless to a classroom printer IF you are attending a class in that room. Open computer labs are available to all students for wireless printing.
If you have wireless internet capabilities on your laptop, you can now print in our labs and classrooms at NC State. A 7¢ fee per black & white page, (VCMT students - 25¢ fee per color printed page) will be charged to your NC State ID card account.
In order to print from your laptop via wireless to one of our printers, you must first install the appropriate print driver package to your device. Each print driver package is unique to the corresponding building/room number. You will need to download and install a print driver package for each individual building/room where you want to print.
NC State students will not be able to login and manage their accounts through BuckID. However, students can make a Quick Deposit using the BuckID website. You will need your BuckID number and a credit card to make a deposit.

Installing a Printer Driver
A printer driver is only necessary if you plan to print wirelessly from your personal laptop computer to printers at NC State. Download the appropriate driver from the list above and then follow the installation instructions for your computer platform listed below.
Once you have the printer driver installed, follow the same pay-to-print instructions as you would when printing from a NC State computer.
