NOTE: If you do not select an account, your Personal Account WILL be charged instead by default. 
 
3. If you are faculty or staff and do not see a CFOP that you should have access to, contact scs-help@illinois.edu to request access. 
    If you are a student, have your PI contact us (scs-help@illinois.edu) on your behalf so we know you are permitted access. 
 
4. Once you are logged in, you can release print jobs or start copy jobs.
