MyPrint is a transaction management system for the self-serve copying and printing facilities at USC. MyPrint caters to staff, students and guests of USC, using individual MyPrint accounts which are managed online.
A MyPrint account holds credit which the account holder has purchased via online payments, with intention to spend the credit on copying, printing, products and services at USC. MyPrint accounts are restricted to a maximum value of $100.00.
Credit can only be withdrawn from a MyPrint account when the account holder meets the full refund criteria.
