Paying for Printing

Law students receive $10.00 of free pages each semester for printing or copying and are charged the regular costs thereafter. Any unused portion of this $10.00 credit is not carried over from one semester to the next. Printing costs beyond the $10.00 stipend must be paid for using printing funds on a DragonCard.

DragonCards can be refilled in several ways:

  • Visit the DragonCard Office (Rm. 124), which is located in the Creese Student Center, 3210 Chestnut Street, between 32nd and 33rd St. You can use a debit/credit card to add funds at the DragonCard office.
  • Go to the DragonCard website (minimum $5).
  • Visit the "Campus + Community" tab on the DrexelOne web portal.
  • Use the DrexelOne app.
