Mystic Print

Mystic Print is the printing service for BSC students. Students can print to designated printers from labs and personal computers while on the campus network.

Note: If you are using your own laptop, you need to be connected to a secure BSC wireless network (BSC-Housing-Secure or NDUS–Systemwide). Mystic Print will not work with the BSC-Guest wireless network.


Pay to Print

Mystic Print works with your Mystic ID and Mystic Dollars to pay for printing. As long as you have funds available in Mystic Dollars, you can use them to print.
