GRCCePRINT introduces new ordering system

Did You Know…

GRCCePRINT has implemented new technology and is in the process of eliminating the old “quick copy codes,” the grccEprint order submission and PSeprint ordering. This means those who are currently ordering through the quick copy form or the PSeprint and grccEprint to start thinking about the transition to our new system. All of our online ordering instructional videos from how to register, placing an order and looking up current and past orders are located on the right hand side of our web page under “Links.” If you would like someone to attend any of your staff meetings to go over the process and show your staff how to use the system, please contact Danelle Sedore at dsedore@grcc.edu to arrange a schedule.
