PawPrint Services is a networked based print, copy, scan, and fax service for all faculty, staff, students, and community members of WCU.
The entire PawPrint fleet is being refreshed! Visit the PawPrint changes page to learn more, including replacement schedule and features.
Printers are divided into four categories (or "Tiers"). Each printer has been designated a tier number based on print volume. The lowest print volume printers are designated tier 1, with the highest volume designated tier 4. All printers in the Technology Commons located in the Hunter Library are Tier 3 or Tier 4.

Students can use the Paw Print system to print documents in the IT Technology Commons in Hunter Library; all Residential Halls; and three (3) designated student computer labs, using CatCash. This assumes funds have been deposited to the CatCard debit account as described below.
The CatCash debit account available on the CatCard allows printing via PAWPrint printers and copiers located across campus. Funds can be added to your CatCash account at any time and there is no minimum deposit required. Funds can be added using the following methods:
Please note: funds included with your Meal Plan are separate from the CatCash account. Money placed into a meal plan account cannot be used to pay for printing, or other non-food items (such as bookstore purchases).
Student workers with WCUiD accounts are considered Staff (see above). In addition,
Student Workers can print and copy using Departmental Cat Cards. Learn more information

PAW Print offers you two printing methods:
In addition, PAW Print enables you to swipe your CatCard to make copies. PAW Print will also allow you to scan pages to e-mail as PDF files or upload to the Mercury share drive folder (The "H:\" drive) by logging in with your WCU login credentials.
Offices can have departmental copy cards made for use by people who are not faculty/staff members. As a reminder, faculty/staff will select the budget code that the printing is to be charged against, so a departmental copy card is not needed to track copy volume by budget code. For information on departmental copy cards, contact the CatCard Office.
