Print Accounts: General Information


Full-time Wharton students

All full-time Wharton MBA and Undergraduate students have printing accounts with an initial credit balance.  (First year MBA students' account is credited for Fall Semester at the beginning of PreTerm.) Once this initial balance has been depleted, students' PennCash account will be automatically charged. Unused credit rolls over to the next semester;and each semester the initial credit is replenished. This credit is not transferable or refundable.
