Starting January 1, 2018, students will have to pay for CLASS printing in advance through the Illini Cash system, instead of being billed to their university accounts after printing.

What is Illini Cash?

Illini Cash is a prepaid account managed by University Housing that can be used as cash at many places on campus locations.

Changes to printing

When you print to a CLASS printer, the printing system, Papercut, will check your Illini Cash balance for a balance at least equivalent to the cost of printing. If the Illini Cash balance is enough to cover the cost of printing, the printing system will process your print job. If the Illini Cash balance is less than the cost of the print job, you will be prompted to add money to your Illini Cash account before the print job is processed.

Faculty and staff

University faculty and staff who are not registered students will continue to receive printing bills on their university account.

How to use Illini Cash

Log in to Illini Cash to add money to your Illini Cash account. The minimum balance you can add is $5.00, with a credit or debit card only.

Refunds with Illini Cash

If a printing refund is requested and approved, the amount of the refund will be credited to your balance in the printing system, where it can be used for future printing and will not be applied back into Illini Cash or a bank account. Your print balance is viewable online.
