Overview

Overview instructions for printing files from your personally owned computing devices such as laptops, ultrabooks, iPads, and email-enabled smartphones using your NSCC printing credits and designated NSCC open computer lab printers (DB203 & LE226.)

NSCC's mobile printing solution enables you to print a variety of file formats without installing anything on your device:

  • All Microsoft Office files
  • All Open Office files
  • PDF
  • TXT
  • JPG, GIF, PNG, TIF

Optionally, you can install a simple driver on your device which allows you to print out any files from your computer.

There are three types of mobile printing to choose from:


 

Web Printing

Sign into the Mobile Printing Portal with your pipeline username and password then select the Web Print tab. Click the "Choose File" button and navigate to a file (file type restrictions apply) and select it. Then click "Next." Your job will display in a queue at the bottom of the page. After several seconds you will be prompted to select which printer you'd like to use. Once you select a printer your file will print and money will automatically be deducted from your NSCC printing account.

To print out a webpage copy and paste the URL into the "Web Address To Print" box then follow the same steps as above.

Driver Printing

This method requires you to install a print driver and printer onto your laptop computer. The advantage to this method of mobile printing is that there are no file type restrictions. If you want to print a Photoshop file you can. If you want to print an Autocad file you can!

Sign into the Mobile Printing Portal with your Pipeline username and password then select the Driver Print tab. From there select your operating system from among the icons at the bottom of the page. Once you've done that make sure to select "Simple (1)" then click "Continue." At this point follow the driver & printer installation directions provided on the mobile printing webpage.

Note: Once you print the file from your computer you have five minutes to log into the Mobile Printing Portal and release the print job(s). After five minutes idle print jobs will expire and need to be sent again.

Email Printing

This mobile printing method allows you to print emails and attachments not only from laptops and netbooks but also any email-enabled device, including iPads and smartphones.

Open your email and select the message you'd like to print then forward that email to mobileprinting@northshore.edu. If this is your first time using the email print service you will receive a return email asking you to register your email address. Follow the link in the email and enter your email address and Campus Pipeline username & password to register. Next log into the Mobile Printing Portal and click on the "My Print Jobs" tab. You'll see your recently sent email, as well as any attachments that may have been included, listed as a print job(s). The text of the email and each attachment will be shown as separate print job. Select a printer to use for each job and you're done.

Note: Once you have forwarded the email to mobileprinting@northshore.edu you have five minutes to log into the Mobile Printing Portal and release the print job(s). After five minutes idle print jobs will expire and need to be sent again.
