    How much does printing cost?

    Student OneCards are given a service credit at the beginning of every semester. The credit on these OneCards cannot be used for anything other than the black and white prints. Once the service credit is depleted, users including faculty and staff are charged $0.08 per printed page at a black/white print release station and $0.55 per printed page at a color print release station. Users who cannot obtain a Sacramento State OneCard (i.e. Library patrons) or who choose not to have a Sacramento State OneCard, can use a Courtesy OneCard to pay for printing.
