Using Your Student ID Card For Printing

Southside Virginia Community College is now using a print management system for printing to college printers.  You will now need to utilize your student id cards for printing on printers in the following locations.

  • Christanna Campus Library
  • Daniel Campus Comprehensive Learning Center (Lab 52)
  • Daniel Campus Library
  • South Hill Center Cyber Cafe
  • Chase City Center Open Lab
  • Emporia Center Resource Lab (Lab 101)

At the beginning of each semester, each student will have $7.50 (which equals 75 pages of printing) loaded onto their existing Student ID Card.  Any who do not have cards, will automatically have this amount loaded on to the card once it the card is printed.   The cost for printing is .10 cents per page, and once you have used the $7.50 given to you from the college, you will need to create an eAccount and put money on the card.  

Steps to Create an eAccount with Card Services

(You only have to register once.)

  1. Go to the Card Services eAccount website and click on Register.
