This service is primarily for students but anyone, including faculty, staff, alumni, parents, and visitors, will be able to use it. Students will be able to print from their personal devices using the web print portal. Students will be able to use the following payments MyColumbia card (must deposit funds by visiting the Online Card Office), ApplePay, Google Pay, Samsung Pay, and credit cards (VISA, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover cards).
When using a credit or debit card you may see a charge called an authorization hold, a well-known practice within the banking industry. An authorization hold is a practice of verifying a credit or debit payment and placing a hold on that account until the funds are transferred. A credit or debit card authorization, also known as a hold, lasts anywhere between a minute and 31 days. Holds last until the merchant charges your card for the purchase and clears them, or they naturally "fall off" your account. Once the process has been verified you will only see the amount for the printing.
Students can add money to their campus card by following the instructions on the Columbia Central site: https://www.colum.edu/columbia-central/on-campus/campus-card. The information is under Adding Columbia Cash to Your Campus Card.
