Lab Printing FAQs
Each year, all WKU full-time, part-time, and graduate students will have a print allocation of $10.00. The annual allocation is for one year only. The unused portion will not roll over into next year's allocation. WKU Faculty and Staff are not issued an annual print allocation.
- If you are a new incoming student for the Fall term, you can expect to receive your print allocation one week before the fall semester begins.
- If you are a new incoming student for the Winter or Spring terms, you can expect to receive your print allocation on the first day Winter term starts.
- If you are a new incoming student at any other time (such as after a term has already started), you can expect to receive your print allocation on the following day.
