 Why is my print job not showing up on the print queue?

There can be several reasons; do you know which printer you have sent it to? Are you printing from a MAC? Make sure the printer is connected (sometimes there is an exclamation mark next to the printer name, in that case, chose another printer if available) If printing from a PC – select one of the printers from the drop down menu and make sure to click on print. Another reason can be:

  1. The data of file can be a bit large (or server is lagging) thus it will take a little time for the information to transfer. Is your document PDF or a file with heavy images?
  2. Are you using your own account? (Check for ID Number)

 Why does the card reader keep saying retry when I insert my printing card?

I can help you with this problem. Did you insert your card in the right direction? The arrow on the card should point toward to the card reader. If you did that and the card reader said retry, contact the Information Desk .


 How can I work with Quickbooks in the Computing Center?

All the Quickbooks files locate in the faculty drive, (Q:) drive. Look for the Accounting folder inside the Q drive and then double click on the folder. Copy and paste the files in either All Students Files folder or App Student Files folder that you want to work on to your USB.
