Papercut

Yakima Valley College and the State of Washington are working to reduce waste, reduce electricity, reduce paper consumption, and provide cost savings to increase student and faculty/staff efficiency. Starting Spring Quarter YVC will begin using a print management system, Papercut. Papercut will provide the college with stats regarding student printing that include tree consumption, C02 produced, and electricity consumption stats. The system will limit student printing to 500 sheets to per quarter, but additional copies are available for a small fee.

  1. All student printers will have a per page cost.
    • 1 side = 1 page
    • Duplex = 2 pages
  2. Students will be allocated 500 free Black & White pages per quarter. After each quarter, free page allocation will be reset to 500. The balance remaining from the previous quarter will not roll into the following quarter.

Student Prices

  • Black & White:  First 500 pages free – $0.01 after
  • Color: $0.50 per page

Cost of printing is subject to change with notification of minimum 30 days. For more information please contact the Technology Services Helpdesk at 509.574.4717 / helpdesk@yvcc.edu.
