How can students check their MavPRINT Balance?  What is arrears printing in MavPRINT?  How do I keep printing over my free MavPRINT prints?

NOTE: New to MavPRINT:

  • Students are still allocated $20 for printing each semester through MavPRINT. Once this allocation is depleted, students can continue to print but the additional cost is added as an Arrears Balance amount, and that balance will be charged to the student’s university account at the end of the semester.

 

Check my MavPRINT balance and available printing:

There are three ways to check your MavPRINT balance:

  1. Using MavPRINT Mobile:
    1. Browse to http://mnsu.edu/mavprint.
    2. Click the Print from your web browser button.
    3. Login using your StarID and Password.
    4. Near the bottom of the window you will see your current MavPRINT balance.
    5. When your MavPRINT balance is $0.00, the description will turn to an “Arrears Balance. This is the balance that will be transferred to your University student account which you must pay at the end of the semester (if any). So if the balance shows a negative “Arrears Balance”, this is the current total that you must pay at the end of the semester as reimbursement for MavPRINT printing over $20.00 of allocated prints.
      1. NOTE: Black and white prints are 5 cents per page. Color prints are 40 cents per page.
      2. NOTE  If your Arrears Balance reaches -$50.00, your MavPRINT account will be locked until you pay some or all of the balance. That amount can be paid at the Memorial Library Copy Shop located on the 1st floor. Cash and credit card payments are accepted.
