Western Colorado's Selective University


The Associated Student Government approved the purchase and implementation of print management software to reduce the University's printing waste. GoPrint software (code name - MAVprint) was purchased and implemented for the Fall 2009 semester.

How does MAVprint work?

  • A percentage of the student technology fee is earmarked for the cost of printing in the open computer labs.
  • Each student will receive a quota of "free prints" each semester equivalent to $10.00 worth of printing.
  • Remaining balances in the quota account at the end of each semester will not be rolled forward and no refunds will be given.
  • The following rates have been established:
    Single-sided, black & white - $.05
    Double-sided, black & white - $.08
    Color - $.25
  • Students will have two "printing purses". The first purse is the quota purse that is credited with the free print allowance at the beginning of each semester.
  • The second purse contains funds that have been added to the student's MAVcard for additional printing. Visit the MAVcard office to add MAVprint money to your MAVcard.
  • Optionally, you can add money to your MAVcard through MAVzone.  Login to MAVzone, click the Campus Life tab, look for the MAVcard channel.  Enter the amount you want to place on the card using the Flex money deposit box.  Then click the Make Payment button and follow the on-screen instructions.
  • Faculty will use MAVprint when printing in the labs. They will not be charged for printing and will have no quotas.
  • Students will not be charged for printing in "closed" labs where a portion of their course fee is used to purchase printing supplies. However MAVprint will track print usage in all labs.
  • High school students will not be charged for printing.

Using MAVPrint is Easy

Using MAVprint is easy. After submitting a print job, the MAVprint window will appear. Enter your username and password to login. Next you will see your submitted print jobs.  To the right is the current purse you will pay from.  Change purses if necessary, check the box next to your print job and click the Pay and Print button.

Now you can print to open lab printers from notebooks connected to the CMU WiFi. For instructions on setting up your notebook visit the Wireless Network Access web page.

Paper Saving Tips

  • Print only the pages that you need in a document.  Don't print drafts for every revision.
  • When printing Power Point slides, print them six (6) to a page, black & white only, with no background.
  • Use the "Print Preview" feature to check your document before printing.
  • Edit and proofread papers online before printing.
  • Avoid printing email messages and Web pages.
  • Send electronic documents instead of printing hard copies.
  • Use the spell check feature to find spelling and grammatical errors.
  • Print only one copy.
  • Use the duplex function to include more than one page per printed document.
  • When printing class assignments or papers, print more than one page per sheet via Zoom option:
  • Check margins, printer, and page settings prior to printing.
  • Use the "print-friendly" option when printing Web pages if available.
