Printing at Wharton: Options, Locations, and Cost


Wharton Printing Account

In order to print a document, students need a Wharton printing account with sufficient funds.

  • 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.

Once this has been depleted, students' PennCash account will be automatically charged. Students taking a Wharton class have printing accounts which draw funds automatically from their PennCash account when they print a document.

  • Add Funds: You can add funds to your PennCash account online at the PennCash website.
  • View your print balance: Log in to Spike and click on the "My Account" tab, OR swipe your Penn card at one of the printers and on the "Select a Document" screen you can view your print account balance and check account details including previous print jobs.
