Multi-Function Printers (MFP's) are located throughout campus. Every device is capable of quality color in addition to black and white. And every device is capable of paper sizes up to 11 x 17. The devices can perform a variety of functions, such as printing, copying, and scanning.

Some office departmental devices will have built-in fax machines and the ability to send and receive faxes digitally, without printing.

Costs for each service for all faculty, staff, and students:

  • Black and White (print and copy) - $0.04 per impression
  • Color (print and copy)- $0.10 per impression
  • Ledger (11 x 17) Black and White - $0.08 per impression
  • Ledger (11 x 17) Color - $0.10 per impression
  • Scan - no charge, unless you print

Direct Print

Normal printing to an MFP works similarly to printing to a personal printer. Serveral options (including duplexing) are available. The document will print to the designated MFP immediately.

Secure Print

Secure Print allows a print job to be queued in the SecurePrint system, but the document will not print until it is released by the same user at an MFP. Once in the queue, the document can be released for print at any MFP on campus.

Secure print is good choice for confidential documents that should only be seen by you.

Web Print

Web Print allows a print job to be sent to any MFP from internet-connected personal devices.

Common Problems:

All SPU Managed devices will be set by default, to use Print - which release the job immediately and default to black and white prints.

In order to use secure print, copy, fax (at the machine) and print or scan to USB, you will need to log into the device via your SPU ID Card.
