Print, Copy and Scan

Your myCard gives you access to print, copy and scan on campus. You may send print jobs through Web Print, from computer stations in classrooms, labs and at computer stations. Add funds online to use your myCard account for printing. In addition to printing, the all-in-one machines allow you to photocopy and scan from (or to) a USB. Tap and hold your myCard until the next display screen and follow the instructions on the screen. Be sure to hit "log out" when your job is finished. There are currently 67 locations accessible to all students to send print jobs.

To print in classrooms and labs, select the printer located in the room, then tap and hold your card in place at the release station to release your job. Be sure to hit "Log Out" when you’re done.

Printing from the Web

The web-print option is a tool that lets you print your documents from non-college computers. This means that if you use a personal computer or laptop, you don't need to spend time finding a free computer in one of the labs to print from.

What you need:

  • A PC or Mac computer with internet access.
  • Internet Explorer or Firefox.
  • Your Centennial College Network ID.
  • Available balance in your Pay-for-Print account.
  • The name of the printer (i.e. pracad01\B321 Progress B Wing Labs).
  • A file in the compatible format.

How to print

To print using the online service, follow these simple steps:

  • Log in to add funds with your Student ID and Password.
  • Check that you have the balance you need.
  • Select the Web Print option.
  • Select Submit a Job.
  • Select which College printer to send the job to, then click on ‘Step 2.’
  • Select the number of copies, then click on ‘Step 3’ to Upload your Document.
  • Click Browse to find the document, then Upload and Complete.
  • A status screen will appear and your print job will be queued for delivery to the printer you selected.

Current compatible file formats are:

  • Microsoft Excel (xlam, xls, xlsb, xlsm, lxlm, xltx)
  • Microsoft Powerpoint (pot, potm, potx, ppam, pps, ppsm, ppsx, ppt, pptm, pptx)
  • Microsoft Word (doc, docm, docx, dot, dotm, dotx)
  • Adobe Acrobat (pdf)
