Photocopying and Printing Policy

Printing, Copying, and Scanning

Three print stations are available at McKee Library, two on the main floor and one on the second floor. Printing is free for all Southern Adventist University students, faculty, and staff. Photocopies can be made for a fee on the library's main floor using the periodicals area machine and the second floor machine. 

Printing and copying fees apply for community library patrons and visitors. The priority for printing/copying/scanning at McKee Library is our students. As such, community users are limited to 50 pages per day for printing, scanning, and copying.


Printing is free for students. For community patrons the cost of black and white printing is six cents, and color printing is 29 cents. Photocopies are 10 cents per page for black and white and 20 cents per page for color and legal size. Patrons may scan to email for free.

In order to photocopy, student patrons must swipe their ID card through the scanner by the copier. Students must add money to their card at the Information Technology Campus Card Desk in Wright Hall or go online to the Meal and Prepaid Plan page under General Shopping (this method takes 1 hour to activate) to pay for copies. The price of the copy is subtracted from the total on the card for each page. The library does not accept cash from students. Community are able to pay with cash. 

Faculty must use their personal ID card to make copies. We no longer accept departmental charges.

Community members with library cards can pay cash at the circulation desk. 

The priority for printing/copying/scanning at McKee Library is our students. As such, community users are limited to 40 pages per day for printing, scanning, and copying. 

The Library will assist visitors in making copies on request. Please see the Circulation desk or Periodicals desk for assistance.
