The Libraries and Technology Learning Centers changed to the new WEPA printing system in January. The previous system was known as SAM and many students had funds remaining in accounts that had been set up in that old system. Beginning today (March 25, 2014), if you would like to be reimbursed for those funds please stop by the library at either campus and the staff will be happy to assist with a reimbursement in the form of a pre-loaded WEPA printing card essentially allowing you to transfer your previous printing funds to the new system.
The library staff has access to a database of user accounts from the old SAM system showing the amounts held in those accounts. Any student requesting a reimbursement will be checked against that database and reimbursed accordingly. All amounts will be rounded up to the nearest dollar (ex: if you are owed $1.20 you will receive $2).
If you have additional questions please call or visit the library on either the Hampton or Historic Triangle Campus.
