WEPA (pronounced wee-pah) is an acronym for Wireless Everywhere Print Anywhere.
Navarro College has collaborated with WEPA to improve printing options for students. WEPA print stations allow for wireless priting through a cloud printing environment. Students are able to print directly from personal devices, USB thumb drives, cloud storage such as: Google Drive, Dropbox, and Office 365.
WEPA enables anyone with an internet connection to upload documents and then print them anywhere a WEPA kiosk is located.
HOW TO PRINT AT THE WEPA KIOSK
Navarro College has installed WEPA stations on all campuses. These print stations will allow you to print dual sided as well as color pages. You will be able to send your document to the WEPA cloud and print it at any WEPA print station on campus. You can print directly from your Canvas account, Office365 account, One-Drive, Google Docs, a USB drive, etc..
You can download the print driver to your home computer and send your documents to the WEPA cloud and print them on campus; go to www.wepanow.com to download the driver. Please read the WEPA brochure (www.wepanow.com) to learn more. If you have any questions, please email email@example.com. Your document will be available for printing for 6 days, after 6 days from when you send the document it will be deleted from the WEPA cloud.
QUICK & EASY PRINT
You can either swipe your ID badge to print your documents or log into the WEPA station using the same username and password you use to log into computers on campus. There is a help button in the lower right corner of the touch screen on the Print Stations if you need assistance. If the Print Station you want to use is down for maintenance a campus map will appear on the screen and show you where other Print Stations are located.
WEPA PRINTING COSTS
The cost for printing is as follows:
10 cents ($.10) for single sided black and white
15 cents ($.15) for dual sided black and white
25 cents ($.25) for single sided color
40 cents ($.40) for dual sided color
When you print from any workstation either here on campus or at home you need to know that there are four (4) Wepa print drivers to choose from – Wepa BW, Wepa BW two-sided, Wepa Color and Wepa Color two-sided. You need to select the correct printer depending on how you want your document to print – the default is Wepa BW two-sided. However, if you have a 10-page document and you want the first page to print in color then you need to use Wepa Color for just the first page and then Wepa BW two-sided for pages 2-10 – when you get to the Wepa station you will see 2 documents – the color page and the rest of the document.
The college is pre-loading your account with an initial amount of free printing and after that you will need to use a credit card to print. We are working on allowing you to put money on a virtual account in the bookstore or going to the cashier and putting money on your Navarro Dinero; this process should be completed before Fall semester. You will know the cost of printing before you select to print.
