PaperCut Quotas and Rates

For students this quota is equivalent to 510 black-and-white printed pages or 25.5 square feet of plotting. To encourage saving paper and toner, double-sided (duplex) black-and-white print jobs are charged at half the cost.

*Plotting charges are calculated on a square-foot basis of printed area.

Plots may be submitted CCITPlotter and can be printed at various sizes up to a maximum of 36 inches in any one direction and practically unlimited in the other direction.

All university affiliated users may submit jobs to plot queue CCITPlotter. Submitting to the plot queue will deduct funds from the user’s PaperCut quota and then from their TigerStripe account once the quota has been depleted. Employees will use CCITDEPTPlotter for departmentally charged items.


If you incorrectly submit a plot or need to delete it from the queue for any reason, please call us immediately at (864) 656-4766.  The user has no direct access to their plot once it has been submitted. If the plot that was submitted has already been printed, your account will be charged.
