Cost and Billing

To prevent excessive printing, the Department of Computing Services charges students a small fee for printing in the FDU Computer Labs. Black and white printing costs $0.05 per page and color printing is $0.25 per page.

Each student pays a technology fee which includes $10.00 of lab printing for each of the fall, spring, and summer semesters. Printing charges above the $10.00 per semester will appear as a Printing Fee on the next tuition bill.  

The $10 per semester printing credit is a standard allotment that expires each semester and has no cash value. No refunds will be given for pages not printed and unused prints for each semester’s allotment do not carry forward.

FDU staff and faculty members can use lab printers on a limited basis without charge for the purpose on conducting FDU business. Please use your department’s printer(s) as your primary printing resource. Faculty and staff members are limited to 200 pages per semester. Any attempt to print past this quota will result in an error message stating that the account does not have enough credit.

Note: You are responsible for all activity on your account. If you share your password with others or forget to log out, you will be held responsible for any activity done via your account, including printing charges. Computing Services strongly recommends that you use non-trivial passwords and log out completely before leaving a workstation.

Receiving Credit for Printing Errors

Credit will be given for errors caused by the printer (paper jams, toner problems, etc.) In such situations, please take the bad printouts to a Lab Assistant in Dreyfuss, Dickinson Hall, or University Hall. Your information will be taken, and reimbursement will be made in the form of a credit applied to your total charge for the semester. Situations which could have been prevented before printing, such as extra blank pages at the end of a document, will not be reimbursed.

Can I Use My Own Paper in These Printers?

No. Jobs are printed as they are received. There is the possibility that after loading the printer with your paper someone will print a job that will then be printed out on your paper. Transparencies and mailing labels are not allowed in the lab printers due to the high heat that laser printers use and the potential for damage to the equipment.

Software Request Guidelines for University Computers and Computer Labs

Resources for: Faculty Staff
icon Close

Departments wishing to obtain software, whether it is for use by the department or to be installed in the FDU computer labs and/or FDU Anywhere, should plan appropriately to provide adequate time to acquire the software and make it available to users.

The following steps should be used as a guide when planning to obtain software for instructional or business use:

  1. Selection of product
  2. Creation of Purchase Order (PO) and approval by department/dean/chair
  3. Technology review and approval by OIRT
  4. New vendor processing, if necessary
  5. Contract review

Tip

Plan a minimum of 3 weeks for a contract review before a PO can be processed. See contract review requirements and order process by visiting the link at the bottom of the page.

  1. Software purchase and delivery to FDU
  2. Software preparation. Plan up to 60 days to allow for items such as:
    • Creating configurations for FDU’s needs and environment
    • Setting up license servers or other required systems
    • Integration with other systems (e.g., Single Sign On)
    • Testing mass deployment (if for the computer labs)
    • Integration with FDU Anywhere (if needed) assuming the software is licensed and approved for VDI enviroment
  3. Testing and confirmation of proper functionality by the requestor (instructor)
  4. Final installation on computers

Note

Even if the software has no cost to FDU, per the Office of the General Counsel and the Contract Review Policy, if the software requires you to agree to terms and conditions, it’s an agreement that must be reviewed
