Printing Guidelines & Procedures

A current StormCard (TCC ID) is required. If you do not have your TCC ID or are not enrolled in the current semester, follow the instructions for Community Patrons. Students must be enrolled in the current semester (Summer, Spring, Fall) to use their StormCard.

  • StormCards are loaded each semester with 100 pages, and that amount does not "roll over" to the next semester.
  • After 100 pages, students must pay 5 cents a page to print. Funds can be added three ways:
    • At StormPort machines in the library, a minimum of $1 can be applied using cash.
    • In the Business Office, a minimum of $25 can be applied using a credit card.
    • On the StormCard Manager website, a minimum of $25 can be applied using a credit card.
    Students can check the balance of their card . . .
    • At self-service stations available in the library.
    • By registering on the StormCard Manager website www.tcc.edu/StormCard.
  • Don't hesitate to ask a library staff member to assist you with loading money on to your StormCard or checking your current balance.

  • A Total Convenience Card is required and can be purchased for $1.00 at the StormPort machine in the library. At least $1.00 must be added to the card to pay for prints, which are $.05 per page.
  • Community Patrons can check their balance by inserting their Convenience Card into the StormPort machine or at the balance check station kiosk.
  • Please don't hesitate to ask a library staff member to assist you with loading money on to your Convenience Card or checking your current balance.
