Student Printing Information
Students are given a $25.00 printing balance at the beginning of each semester for use in the computers labs and copy machines throughout campus. This is the equivalent of 500 single-sided black and white print outs. As you print or make copies, the cost is deducted from this balance. If you need more money for your printing account, you can do so by adding money to your Carolina Card through VIP.

How to Release Your Print Job
After you have printed your document from a computer, select the ‘Print Release’ option from the printer’s touch screen. The touch screen is found on the front of the printer near the top.
** Note: Print jobs time out 18 hours after you have clicked print on the computer. So, you have 18 hours from the time you click print at your computer to the time you go to a printer to release the print job. After 18 hours, print jobs are deleted from the queue.
You will be prompted to login to the MFP printer by either swiping your USC Upstate ID card or entering your USC Upstate username and password.
All HP MFP's on campus have a card reader attached to the top of the printer. When prompted to login, simply swipe your card through the card reader.
Swipe your card slowly, to avoid damaging your card and misreads, with the back of the card facing towards you
Logging in Using Your Network Username and Password
If you do not have your University ID Card, or your ID card was made prior to December 2008, you can log in to MFP printers using your network username and password.
• This is the same username and password you use to login to computers and the wireless network on campus.
• Students that do not remember their network username and password should visit the Help Desk in person, in the Stockwell Administration Building, Room 109.
• Students can also reset their USC Upstate network password by visiting http://password.uscupstate.edu.
• Faculty and staff that do not remember their username and password should visit the Help Desk in person, in the Stockwell Administration Building, Room 109.
When prompted, press the keyboard button on the display:
An onscreen keyboard will appear, enter your username and press ok: This is the same username and password you use to log onto computers on campus.
An identical onscreen keyboard will then appear to enter your password. Enter your password there and press ok.
You will receive confirmation when you have logged in successfully.
You will then be presented with a screen that lists the print jobs you have sent to the printer. If you have sent more than one job you will see each one listed here.
Select the one job you’d like to print or press print all to print all the documents. You will also see the cost associated with your print job to the right along with your current balance.
Once your print job has been printed, press the home button, the house in the top left corner.
Now click sign out at the bottom of the screen.
NOTE: The printer will automatically sign you out after a couple minutes but you don’t want someone coming up behind you and running off a bunch of copies while you are still logged in.
That’s it. Now you know how to print to any of the MFP printers on campus. No more waiting for the printer to be available or sifting through countless pages of other peoples print jobs to find yours. Or someone reading what you’ve printed off because it doesn’t print until you are there to release the print job.
If you have any questions or issues please contact the HelpDesk at (864) 503-5257, email@example.com or in person Administration building 109.
