About Pay for Print

NKU administers a system called "Pharos Pay for Print" that allows students to pay for printing electronically in computer labs.

 Each semester, students are granted a credit for business printing (i.e. 8.5 x 11 sized paper).

  • Full-time students: $12 credit
  • Part-time students: $6 credit
  • Winter term students: $2 credit

You can check your balance anytime.  Once your credit runs out, you can add money to your All Card to continue printing.

If you have a credit at the end of a semester, the balance will be carried forward to the next semester.

In the event of a printer malfunction, you may apply for a refund.

Printing Costs

The price between black and color printing differs. Color printing is only available in certain labs (Library and Norse Tech Bar).

  • Black prints $0.08 per page
  • Color prints $0.50-0.75 per page (depending on location)

Printing from your own device

NKU offers students convenient, web-based self-service printing.  Visit https://payforprint.nku.edu to send print jobs to any on-campus Pharos printer, view Pharos account balances, and more.
