Mesa College is transitioning from the Pharos Print system to the PaperCut Print Management system for student printing. Students are now able to create a PaperCut print account, add funds to their print account using PayPal and send a print job from any device on or off campus. Click here for additional information.

The LRC and AVANZA (I4-203) are operating on the new PaperCut Print Management System. The Maas lab (C-108), Printing and Mail Services (MC-215) and Design Center (Z-303) are still operating on the Pharos system and will be transitioning to the new PaperCut Print Management system in the Spring 2018 semester.
