What is OrePrint?

OrePrint is the new printing system that CCIT has implemented, which provides several key features:

  • Web Printing: From the OrePrint web app, you can submit jobs to OrePrint & OrePrintColor for PDF & common Microsoft Office formats, without needing to map to the print servers — this works well for kiosks, ChromeBooks, and other personal machines.
  • “Follow Me” Printing: With two print queues, OrePrint & OrePrintColor, you are able to print from anywhere to the cloud, and pick up your print outs at any OrePrint release station or OrePrint Mobile Release printer across campus.
  • Print Account Management: Also from the OrePrint web app, you can manage your printing account, including:
    • Check Your Balances
      • You can see the “OrePrint” balance as well as the Tech Fee balance that is granted every semester ($8 for each Spring and Fall semester)
    • Redeem OrePrint cards to your OrePrint balance
    • Transfer from your OrePrint balance to another user
    • Coming Fall 2018: Adding funds online via credit card to your OrePrint balance
