At Sheridan College, students can all print to the “GREEN” Queue. This queue collects all the documents you send and allows you to release them to the printer of your choice by tapping your OneCard on it. Students are charged $0.04 per single page, and $0.06 for double sided print. Printing from an iPad will only give you single sided as an option. You are give $5.00 to start and can add funds during the year via Access Sheridan.
There is no AirPrint setup on campus, so printing directly from the iPad's print window is not available. To use the GREEN queue, you will first need to install the Samsung Mobile Print App:
You should set up the printer before trying to print something. Follow these steps to do so:

Navigate to the page you wish to print in Safari. With that page open, tap the action icon directly left of the address bar (looks like an arrow jumping out of a box). Then tap the “Copy” button.
Go to the Mobile Print App and tap Clipboard on the main screen. It will present you with two options, tap the one with the linking chain next to it.
It will then present you with the page. Tap the green “Preview” button at the bottom of the screen to generate the page as a printable document and send it to the GREEN queue by tapping Print.
