All other schools within Johns Hopkins University also implement controls on student copying and printing. Most do not provide free printing, and the costs range from $.04 to $.10 per page. When we initially implemented our system, we matched the quotas and costs currently offered by the SPH. All SON students (BS, MSN, DNP, PhD) were given a quota of 1000 free black and white prints or photo copies each academic year (June 1 to the following May 31 thereafter). This quota schedule proved to be problematic, given the variety of start and end times of SON programs, and the fact that many of our pre-licensure program students continue on to other graduate programs. For this reason, we implemented a new quota system to better accommodate program start and end times. Annual quotas have increased from 1000 to 1500 prints. However, this quota will be distributed throughout the year. Students will be given a quota of 250 prints when they are first admitted to the School of Nursing. This free quota will then be reset to 250 prints every two months (on January 1, March 1, May 1, July 1, September 1, and November 1). Any unused free prints will not carry over. Any prints or copies beyond 250 within the two month cycle will be billed to the student's SIS billing account at $.04 per page for black & white and $.07 per page for color.
