Confirming Your PaperCut Account and Settings

A PaperCut account is created for you automatically. Before you can print, however, we recommend doing the following:

  • Confirm that you can access PaperCut by logging in to the PaperCut Web portal with your NetID and password. (Note: If you’re new to Georgetown, make sure you change your temporary password.)
  • If you don’t have a Mobile GOCard or an NFC-enabled GOCard that has a chip on it (with these GOCard types, you can tap your GOCard on a printer card reader to log in to the printer), you’ll need to create a PIN to log in to a printer to release your print job.
  • If you’re using a Mac computer, make sure to check the box next to the option Remember this password in my keychain the first time you log in. If you select this option to save your password to your Mac computer’s keychain (password storage utility), you will no longer be prompted to authenticate every time you want to print documents.
  • Review the page Before You Begin Using PaperCut for any additional items you need before you print.
