Quota Extensions

Faculty members may request quota extensions for their advisees or students by contacting the Help Desk. Extensions are reviewed by CSE Computing Staff on a case-by-case basis.

Print Quota Usage

PaperCut NG is our print management software. CSE users can monitor their printing quota. On departmental computers, the software resides in the Task Bar on the bottom right, as seen below. 

Opening the app will show you your remaining print quota in page units. Each sheet sent to a Black and White (B/W) printer costs 1 print credit and each sheet sent to a Color printer costs 10 print credits.  Printing duplex is the same cost as non-duplex.

If the app shows that you have 50 remaining, then that means that you have 50 B/W printer sheets or 5 Color printer sheets remaining in your quota this term.

Research computers do not have this software, but you can also use a browser to check your print quota:  print.cse.ohio-state.edu:9191 .  Click here to check your quota.
