Faculty & Staff: Copy / Print Troubleshooting Checklist

If you are having trouble printing from an MFP please review the following important check list items. Should you encounter an issue please contact the appropriate service department.

Checklist Item Details Service Department
Install a Print Driver

Faculty and Staff also have the option of requesting a "Direct Print Driver" for USF equipment. This allows for the additional option of sending a print job to a department dedicated device for automatic release without swiping in at the MFP device.

For Personal Laptop - Mac, PC - Please download the Challenge version of the print driver located on this page.
