Printing from your laptop
In order to print from your laptop, you will need to install the driver for each printer while you are on campus. You can download the printer drivers here.
If you would like assistance in installing the printer drivers, or if you are having difficulty printing from your laptop, please contact or visit EVMS Information Technology for assistance.
PaperCut / Print Balance
PaperCut is an easy-to-use tool that empowers students to manage their own accounts. Please note that you can only check your balance on campus. The following are samples of what you can see or do in PaperCut:

Students are given a generous printing balance of $200 per year. For most students, the annual allowance cycle begins on July 1. For Physician Assistant students, the annual allowance cycle begins on January 1. Credits from the previous year do not carry over. Fees from the previous year are not deducted from a new allowance balance. Printing costs are as follows:
- 10 cents per page for simplex (single-sided) black and white documents
- 20 cents per page for duplex (double-sided) black and white documents
- 30 cents per page for simplex color documents
- 60 cents per page for duplex color documents
Patrons who print in black and white should be able to print 2,000 simplex pages annually, which is more than enough for the average student. If your account balance drops below $5, you will receive a low balance notice from PaperCut. Those who exceed their allowance will be charged at the rates listed above. The charges will appear on their library accounts, and they will receive a monthly bill.
Please note that all library accounts must be paid in full prior to graduation. Graduating student accounts are limited in April to avoid incurring a negative balance before graduation. Please visit the circulation desk for additional information and help with print credits.
Tracking your printing account
The library’s print auditing software, PaperCut, features a web interface that allows students to view their account information. While you are on campus, you can access your PaperCut account online. You can also use the computers in the computer lab or classroom to access PaperCut; open the Zenworks application window to find PaperCut.
Please note that PaperCut uses your EVMS credentials to authenticate you as a valid user and log you into the system.
