Student Print Allowance

Last modified 2/19/2023

Students of Illinois State University are provided $6.00 in free prints (75 standard black & white prints) per academic year. The free prints are provided by the Student Academic Enhancement fee.

Your print allowance balance will be visible on the uPrint website ( when you upload documents to print. Your allowance will also be visible when you release your print at a uPrint release station, so you always know how much of your allowance remains.

Once your print allowance has been used for the year, you can use your Redbird Card dollars to pay for your prints. uPrint will automatically switch to your Redbird Card dollars after exhausting your print allowance. To add money to your Redbird Card to use for prints, see Adding Money to Your Redbird Card or Guest Copy Card.
