Fill out an BeaverPrint credit form. See the directions given in the printing policy

How do I keep track of my how many pages where printed?

Log into http://www.onid.orst.edu and look at your printing information 

I printed something, but nothing came out. Will I be charged? OR The printer looked like it was going to print, but nothing came out. Will I be charged?

Most likely, no. The printer is asked the printer page count before and after the job is done, if the printer counter does not go up, because no pages went through the printer the count would be 0. If you are unsure, look at your print log at http://onid.oregonstate.edu/and click on "Printing" on the left hand side.
