Color Printing for Students

From Bob Pesciniski in RVTS, Feb 2018

There is a letter-size color laser printer available to students in W-205. It is only useable from the PC’s in that lab.
It is managed by our PaperCut system and the cost per side is $.10. That is 4x’s the cost of a B&W print which is $.05 per sheet whether single or double sided.
Feel free to direct students who ask for color printing to this lab. A sign will be posted on the printer indicating the cost of the print.
We will not be “advertising” the availability of this printer, but we will provide the information to any student that asks via the help desk.

Electronic Transcript Ordering - New Fall 2017

From Dan Palubniak, Registrar, Nov. 1, 2017:

RVCC moved to a new electronic transcript request and processing system with Parchment, Inc. in mid-October.  This new system allows students to order an official academic transcript and have it delivered to any valid college or individual email address worldwide on the same day.  The option to order paper copies is still available, but these take several days to process and deliver.

Since a number of your students may need to order transcripts as we move closer to the conclusion of the fall semester, please inform them that they will need to use this new system.

Transcript orders can be submitted by accessing  This site also provides detailed information about this new system.

There's a transcript order menu option in the Lion's Den under Student Services that will take someone to the ordering page above.

No printers networked on a public computer

Occasionally students discover that there are no printers installed on the machine that they are using. According to MIS, this is because the printers are installed with a network group policy and this occasionally fails and does not install the printers correctly. Restarting the machine will fix this problem.
