PaperCut FAQs

What happens to my balance at the end of the semester?

Your credit balance displayed in the PaperCut window is actually a combination of two accounts:

  • Initial semester credit (provided by the University) - this $25 in print quota has no cash value; reset to $25 at the beginning of each semester
  • Supplemental credit (added by you) - this balance comes from CajunCash you add into your account for additional print quota; supplemental credit carries forward every semester and is nonrefundable.
