ICS, Approving and Releasing your Print Job

On this page, you can find information to help you release a printing job from the ICS printer queue to a printer in an ICS computer lab.


When you print to an ICS printer, your print job is held in a queue until released. The print job will be deleted if it is not released within an hour.

Where to release print jobs

You can release print jobs from the Print Release station for that printer. The Print Release station is a dedicated computer next to the printers in every computer lab. Its screen will look like this:

Print Release

When a job has been sent from a remote location (e.g. your personal computer), the NetID will be "(unknown)". You can identify your job by its Job Name. The Job Name will usually be descriptive and contain the name of your document. When you have located your print job on the Print Release station, check the box next to it and then click "Select Jobs". The next screen will look like this:

Print Release

Enter your NetID, ICS password, and click "Release". Your document will be printed and your account billed.
