  2. How can I start using the shared campus printers?
     
    1. Faculty/Staff - logon to http://imstickets.uthscsa.edu and search for "Access to Shared Campus Printers". You will need to provide a PID to be billed only when you print/copy/scan.

    2. Students - logon to https://utprinting.uthscsa.edu, click on Add Credit. Add funds to your PaperCut account using a credit card. If you do not have a Credit Card but need to use Cash, you can go to the Library or UT Print and ask them to add money to your account. Click Web Print and upload a document. Logon to http://imstickets.uthscsa.edu and search the Knowledge Base for instructions on using the printers. Use the keywords "Shared Campus Printers" in your search.
