STATEMENT OF PURPOSE

ePrint (Pharos Uniprint) is a print/copy management system that works in conjunction with the University’s CampusCard Transaction System.  The ePrint program offers users a uniform method to pay for printing services throughout the UAB campus. A print management system not only allows users to pay only for the services they choose, but promotes fiscal and environmental responsibility and significantly diminishes printing waste.

GENERAL POLICIES 

  1. The Department of Student Affairs will provide administrative and financial management and technical support for the ePrint Program.

  2. The UAB CampusCard office will be responsible for managing deposits into BlazerBucks and Copy/Print accounts used to pay for copy/print services at ePrint Department locations.

  • BlazerBucks is a pre-paid declining balance account that can be used to pay for goods and services anywhere the CampusCard is accepted, including both on-campus and approved off-campus merchant venues.

  • Copy/Print is a pre-paid declining balance account that can be used to pay exclusively for copy/print services at ePrint locations. Copy/Print accounts are for official University business and are funded by UAB general ledger or grant account monies.

  1. BlazerBucks and Copy/Print are neither demand deposit accounts nor an interest bearing accounts.

  2. Cash withdrawals from a BlazerBucks or Copy/Print account are not permitted.

  3. Transfers of funds between CampusCard debit accounts are prohibited.

  4. There is no minimum deposit required to activate a BlazerBucks or Copy/Print account.

  5. Additional funds can be added to BlazerBucks and Copy/Print accounts in varying amounts, at will.

  6. The CampusCard office will be responsible for issuing CampusCards, BlazerBucks Guest Cards and Departmental Copy/Print Cards used to access the aforementioned funds. Users will need to swipe their Card at the print release station.

  7. ePrint Departments can accept BlazerBucks and Departmental Copy/Print funds as payment.  Meal plans and funds deposited in cardholders Dining Dollars accounts cannot be used to pay for printing services. 

  8. Individuals using ePrint services for personal use, i.e. paid for by the individual, should add funds to their BlazerBucks account

  9. Students access their BlazerBucks account with their UAB CampusCard. Students can add funds to their BlazerBucks account online at www.uab.edu/campuscard via credit/debit card, in the CampusCard office (HUC 158) via credit/debit card or check, and at a BlazerBucks Value Transfer Station via cash, debit and credit.

  10. Parents or other benefactors can add funds to a student’s BlazerBucks account by mailing a check to the CampusCard office or signing in as a guest online at www.uab.edu/campuscard.

  11. University Employees can access their BlazerBucks account with a UAB CampusCard, a Physical Security issued employee badge encoded with their CampusCard account number or a BlazerBucks Guest Card purchased from a BlazerBucks Value Transfer Station. Employees can add funds to their BlazerBucks account online at www.uab.edu/campuscard via credit/debit card (CampusCard and employee badge only), in the CampusCard office (HUC 158) via credit/debit card or check, and at a BlazerBucks Value Transfer Station via cash, debit and credit.

  12. Some UAB Hospital employees and employees of the UAB Health Services Foundation and UAB affiliate organizations will not have UAB CampusCard accounts and will be limited to BlazerBucks accounts obtained by purchasing a BlazerBucks Guest Card from a Value Transfer Station. Additional funds can be added at the CampusCard office (HUC 158) via credit/debit card or check or at a BlazerBucks Value Transfer Station via cash, debit and credit.

  13. Individuals who are not students or employees who require funds for printing services at ePrint locations can obtain a BlazerBucks account by purchasing a BlazerBucks Guest Card from a Value Transfer Station.

  14. Individuals/Departments using ePrint services for official University business, i.e. paid for by UAB, must add funds to a Departmental Copy/Print account.

  15. Department must submit an internal requisition (GL account), cost transfer form (grant account), or HSF Requisition (Health Service Foundation funds) to the CampusCard office and will be issued the requested Departmental Copy/Print card(s). Funds accessed by these cards will be limited to copy/print services at ePrint locations. Additional funds can be added as needed via internal requisition/cost transfer form/HSF requisition.

  16. Purchases made at ePrint locations will be deducted automatically from the cardholder’s BlazerBucks or Copy/Print account at the time of purchase.

  17. In the event of an equipment malfunction, cardholders should request assistance from an agent at the ePrint location. ePrint Departments can elect to:
  • redirect or reprint jobs at no cost to the cardholder, or

  • request that funds be credited back to the cardholders account.

  1. The cardholder is responsible for all cardholder authorized transactions. This includes any transactions which are completed when the print release station is not in direct communication with the system processor for whatever reason or when there are insufficient funds in the cardholder's account. Should the cardholder's account contain insufficient funds, the cardholder will be immediately notified to deposit funds to cover such transactions as soon as possible after the system is brought on-line and the transactions downloaded to the cardholders debit account.

  2. If a cardholder believes their CampusCard/Copy/Print card has been lost or stolen, the cardholder should freeze their account activity online or report at once such loss or theft to the CampusCard Office. Failure to make a report of a lost or stolen card may result in the loss of funds in the cardholder's BlazerBucks/Copy/Print account. The University is not liable for funds lost prior to freezing account activity or the report of a lost or stolen CampusCard/Departmental Copy/Print Card.
