Getting Your RCC I.D. Card

Images uploaded must be taken in front of a solid-colored background (preferably white).

On-Campus Printing & Copying


Enrolled RCC students will receive a $15.00 allotment in the fall and spring semesters, respectively, and they will receive a $10.00 allotment during the summer semester.  PaperCut funds will be available on the first day of the semester, or within 24 hours after a student's late registration date, as their PaperCut accounts will be created overnight.  Thereafter, students will be able to add funds to their accounts in order to print additional pages as needed. 

If a student's PaperCut allotments go unused, they will disappear at the end of the semester and will not transfer to the next semester.  However, any monies which students have added themselves to their PaperCut accounts, and which have not been used by the end of the semester, will carry over to the following semester.

Curriculum students will be able to print in black-and-white for ten (10) cents per copy.  Note that this means that students will be charged for two copies (or 20 cents), if they choose double-sided printing. 

Adding Funds to Your PaperCut Account

If a student's PaperCut account balance becomes low, and it is necessary to add funds, students will be able to add funds online with a credit or debit card, or alternatively they can add cash amounts at the RCC Business Office (Building 2) from 8:00 am – 5:00 pm.  

Color Printing for Students

Simply select color from the print window.  Color copies are twenty-five (25) cents each. Note that in the library, the smaller printer (on the right) is the only machine that will print in color.

Resolving Issues with Printing

Students may contact the I.T. Help Desk for assistance with issues related to printing, such as if you believe that there has been a printing malfunction.  However, if a printing problem or issue occurs at the Anne Moss-Biggs Library, students should confer with the library’s director for a resolution.  If necessary, and after reviewing each situation and making a case-by-case determination, the help desk technicians or the library director can make adjustments to a student’s PaperCut account.  Finally, no cash refunds will be issued for any reason.
