MDRL/I&RC Printing Policy

Large-format printing is a resource for students and employees of Auburn University for class assignments or academic research projects. See the MDRL/I&RC Help Desk for setup assistance and approval of large-format prints. Printing capability includes items up to 36" on one side however, we can print up to 44" if you supply your own paper. Large-format prints over 17" and up cost $7.00 per page. Poster printing is restricted to class assignments, academic research projects and presentations. Fees are collected via bursar bills, and the charge does not apply to AU faculty and staff at this time.

NOTE: The MDRL/I&RC does not provide large-format printing for personal, campus organization, or departmental purposes. For example, we do not print birthday posters, Greek or campus event materials, or departmental signage. Currently, large-format printing charges do not apply to faculty and staff, however is limited to conference and research prints.

THE MDRL/I&RC DOES NOT ACCEPT DROP-OFF OR EMAILED FILES FOR PRINTING. We will gladly help you print, but you must visit the lab in-person.

CHARGES FOR PRINTING INCLUDE ANYTHING THAT YOU ACCIDENTALLY PRINT. Think before you click print, and choose the self-service printer carefully! For example, printing a black-and-white document to the color laser printer will charge you the same as if it were in color. Be sure to proof your poster before you ask to print it. Additional prints result in additional cost.

STUDENTS ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY CHARGES INCURRED IN THE MDRL/I&RC. Charges for printing in this lab go to the Office of the Bursar. If printing is included in your major or specific course as part of a lab fee or other means, those allowances DO NOT transfer to this lab.

Student employees sent to the MDRL/I&RC to print items for faculty or staff employers will need to fill out a form at our help desk so as not to get charged.
