Only current students, faculty, and staff members may use their University ID card with the printing system at this time.
University visitors, visiting scholars, spouses/partners of current affiliates, retirees, and other affiliates should obtain and use a Stanford Printing Card, available at Green library.
As a student, you can sign up for the Stanford Card Plan or use the Credit to Card available from Green Library.
The Stanford Card Plan (SCP) https://sfs.stanford.edu/ is like a credit card with a limit of $1,000. The SCP can be used for printing, the Stanford Bookstore, and several on-campus eateries and dining halls. Therefore, if you print $10 worth of paper, you will be charged using your SCP and your University bill will reflect those charges. Each quarter, your $1,000 limit will be reset automatically. You can enroll in the SCP in the Fall, Winter, or Spring Quarter, which covers you for the rest of the academic year. Once you enroll in the SCP, you won't have to do so again. After you sign up for the SCP, it takes up to a day to receive the credit.
If you replace your Stanford ID card, the balance moves automatically to the new ID card.
If you add funds to your ID card, those funds will be used before SCP.
For information on adding funds to the Credit to Card, go to http://printingcredit.stanford.edu.
