Seahawk Print (Pay-For-Print)

Broward College provides multi-function devices at each location as a service to students, faculty, and staff.  These devices can be used for printing, copying, and scanning to support learning.  A nominal fee is charged for printing and copying – scanning to e-mail services are free of charge.  The fee is under the rates of commercially available copy centers.  The new system requires payment by credit card (credit capable debit cards are also accepted).  If you do not have a credit/debit card (not an ATM only card), a  credit card is available for purchase at the bookstore.  We are working to provide an alternate payment method for those that may need it.

Pre-paid cards can be purchased in vending machines on campus at the following locations:

Campus Building Floor
Central Campus 17 1st
North Campus 62 1st
South Campus 72 Suite 200
​Pines Center ​100 ​Lounge 201
​Downtown Center 33 3rd

Where’s My Print Job? It may take a few minutes for your job to get to the printer, depending on what you are printing and how busy the network happens to be. If you don’t see your job right away, wait a little while and try again.

What if my print job is very large? There currently is a 100 page limit to each print job that you send.

I forgot my Release code number: Each of your print jobs is given a unique “Release Code”. You only need this number if you are having a problem and need technical help. To retrieve your print job, use the information you entered in the "Your Name" box.
