  2. Choose the a campus copier from the Printer drop-down menu.
  3. Click Printer Properties.
  4. Change the Print Job to Private Print.
  5. Click the button with three dots next to the Print Job menu.
  6. Enter a Password (cannot be your SJY IT network password. It can be any 4-8 digits you choose).
  7. Click OK to set the password.
  8. Click OK to the printer properties.
  9. Click OK to being the print job. The job will be “sent” to the copier but it will not print yet.
