All Medical Students are granted a print allotment at the beginning of each year. For more information about Medical Student print allotments, please refer to this page from Medical Student Education. Once you have used all of your Medical Student printing allotment, you may add funds via your Crimson Card in order to continue printing. Print prices are listed in the UITS Knowledge Base.

To check your print balance:

  1. Go to Mobile Print .
  2. Log in with your IU username and passphrase.
  3. Look in the bottom left corner of the screen, under the "Payment Method" area. Your remaining allotment and CrimsonCard plan balances are shown individually.

Black and white photocopies in the library cost $.04 and color copies $.25 per page, using your Crimson Card (see all print and copy prices listed in the UITS Knowledge Base). Only Medical Student print allotments can be used on Medical Library printers/copiers. Photocopies can be made on the first and second floor print stations. The printer/copier can also be used as a scanner.
