Papercut: Student Printing

How it works

Both the Library and College use Papercut to manage printing. The library provides a $5 credit each semester to all NWACC students, faculty, and staff for printing and photocopying in the library and Information Commons, in both Bentonville and Washington county.

When you login to the copiers in the Library and the Information Commons to release your print jobs, please make sure you choose your "Personal Account," not your "Departmental Account." Printing and Copying in the Library and Information Commons is for personal use only, not departmental printing.

If you do not expend your entire $5.00 credit, any money remaining will not roll over to the next semester, however, you do receive a new $5.00 credit the next semester. You may add additional money to your Papercut account with a debit or credit card.

To add funds to your personal PaperCut account, please use the following steps:

  • Go to and login using your MyNWACC Username and Password
  • Click on Add Credit on the left hand side
  • Choose the amount you would like to add.
  • Fill out the payment information
  • Click Submit.

*You must be on-campus to access Papercut and add funds electronically

Any money you add to your account will roll over to the next semester.

Black & White prints are $.05 each, color prints are $.50 each. Unfortunately, we do not give refunds from Papercut. If you have problems printing please see the library/lab manager at the time of the problem, or email

You can also use your Papercut account for photocopies and scanning in the Library and Information Commons, Bentonville or Washington County. Simply log in to the photocopiers in either location with your MyNWACC Username and Password, choose your personal account, and choose Access Copier. Black & White photocopies are $.05 each, color photocopies are $.50 each. You can scan and email documents at no charge.

Please contact the library for basic trouble shooting and training. If your staff need unlimited printing to trouble shoot student print problems, please send us a list of usernames for those individuals.

Information Technology Services manages the server side of Papercut. If your area does not have Papercut, please contact the library and ITS to inquire about installing it in your area.

Users may also upload and print from their personal devices via the campus wifi network to designated printers--see the Printing from Personal Devices tab on this guide.If you have any questions or concerns about Papercut and how it works for NWACC faculty and staff please contact the library at
