FAQ regarding PaperCut usage for EWS
What is PaperCut?
PaperCut is the back-end software that handles print requests and billing to your Illini Cash account. It is totally invisible when printing from EWS labs and is working automatically in the background.
There is nothing special you need to do. You just print at any EWS labs, and it will automatically deduct from your Illini Cash balance.
Printing from your own device is easy. Log in to the PaperCut Web Portal at: https://papercut.ics.illinois.edu/.
Navigate to WebPrint > Submit A Job > Select A Printer > Select Options and then Upload Documents
How do I check my balance, and how do I add to my printing balance?
