Printing with Papercut

How to use the WSU Libraries printing system

Printing in the library with PapercutWhat is Papercut?

Papercut is the WSU Libraries printing system. We no longer use Shocker Cards for print jobs. Instead the cost of printing is deducted directly from your Papercut account. Papercut allows you to add money to your account directly using a credit or debit card, and makes it possible for you to print to Library printers without using a library computer by using the web print option.

What do you need to know?

  • All WSU Students already have a Papercut account.  To access yours, do one of the following:
    • Go to http://papercut.wichita.edu and login using your Shocker ID and Password. You can add money directly to your Papercut account with a credit or debit card by using the "Add Credit" option.
    • Use the Papercut Kiosk in the lobby of the Ablah Library. Cash ONLY and NO refunds can be given from this machine.
  • Black and White printing now costs $0.10/page
  • Color printing is available but only at Printer #5 and costs $0.25/page.
  • What about the money still on your Shocker Card?  You can still use it to make copies, or you can go to the Shocker Card office in the RSC to ask for a refund.
  • You can use the "Web Print" option on Papercut to print on library printers using your own laptop.  However, Web Print jobs must be in PDF format.
