Discretionary Funds

Discretionary funds are deposits of your money to your ID card account, this will allow you to purchase products or pay for all available services except printing fees.

Printing Funds

The Printing funds are strictly for printing fees, all fees are deducted from the account as printed. All student printing is monitored by a system that allows the student to accept the charges before printing.

IT Department Printing Allowance

The IT department allocates each student a $25 allowance per semester. When a student prints, a popup software “Lamess” will show a total balance of the allowance and any personal printing funds. The system is designed to use all the allowance funds first then use personal print funds.

*The IT printing allowance is not included in tuition and is subject to change as Rivier expands the ID card system. 

**The Printing allowance will be reset every semester.

An ID can be obtained from 9:00 A.M. to 7:30 P.M. from Monday to Thursday and 9:00 A.M. to 5:00 P.M. on Friday during the school year.
