Important: Students receive $15.00 in PrintBucks each semester. This is the equivalent of 500 black and white pages or 30 color pages. If you use up your $15.00 in PrintBucks during the semester, you will be charged 3 cents for each additional black and white page to your Eagle Bucks account, and you will be charged 50 cents for each additional color page. Two pages, printed double-sided, are charged as one page. Learn more about BC's student printing policy.

NOTE: Color printing requires alternative setup, and is only available in select locations.
