Shared Accounts for Printing/Copying

<<<<Back to Copy/Print Home Page

Shared Accounts allow staff and faculty with multiple roles or budget needs the ability to specify to which budget each print job should be applied. Shared Accounts also allow student workers to copy and print work-related documents using their 'own' Pepperdine credentials and ID Card for authentication, AND without deducting from their personal funds.

NOTE: Google Cloud Print is not an available option for anyone that has access to a Shared Account.

Advantages of Shared Accounts

  • Flexibility - NO need to use and share a generic departmental ID card as students will be using their Pepperdine credentials.
  • Accountability - Copy/print activity will be tracked.
  • Cost Control - Department's loss is capped at the value of the pre-paid card if printing is done outside of work responsibilities.

Responsibility of the Employee

This process requires the employee to actively select which budget to apply all copy/print activity.
