Printing Options for Staff

Printing options for students can be found here

There are many ways to send your print jobs to the new Xerox MFPs! If your computer is a college-owned computer and on the domain you can download the Xerox print drivers and off you'll go. You can also follow the directions for students found here to email your print jobs or use the web interface without downloading the drivers. Whichever way works for you works for us!

Note: You will have 24 hours to print out your job before it expires.

Below are the directions to follow to download drivers on to College-owned computers in the domain:
