Printing at Wharton: Options, Locations, and Cost

This article provides information regarding the logistics of Wharton Printing.

Wharton Printing Account

In order to print documents at Wharton, students will need a Wharton printing account with sufficient funds (print credits and/or PennCash).

  • Full-time Wharton MBA students receive an initial free (& non-refundable) credit balance of $40 at the beginning of each semester.
  • Full-time Wharton UGR students receive an initial free (& non-refundable) credit balance of $20 at the beginning of each semester.

Using PennCash

Wharton Printing credit is always used first -- your PennCash account will only be debited once your Wharton Printing credit is exhausted. Non-Wharton students taking a Wharton class have printing accounts which draw funds automatically from their PennCash account.

  • Add Funds: You can add funds to your PennCash account online at the PennCash website.
  • View your print balance:
    • Swipe your PennnCard at one of the printers
    • Navigate to MyWharton > All Links > Print Credit Balance

Graduating Students & Refunds

  • Wharton Printing Credit: Non-transferable and non-refundable; carries over from semester to semester
  • PennCash: Upon graduation, any remaining PennCash funds will be reimbursed to you through your bursar's bill. Check your PennCash funds here.
