Printing and Copying

Each semester (including summer), UH students will receive a print credit of $7.50 on their CougarCard. It may be used to print and make copies.  

After the print credit has been used, additional printing is $0.015/pg ($0.03/pg duplex) for black and white or $0.10/pg ($0.20/pg duplex) for color, debited from your CougarCard Flex Account.
