Pharos Print & Copy and your Flex Dollars

The Pharos print and copy system is available at many locations for printing and copy services for students, faculty and staff (for personal and departmental printing and copy), guests, and alumni. Pharos uses the Biola campus ID card to access individual print queues and Flex dollars for payment. Flex dollars are the same funds used to purchase food. Learn more about adding and using Flex dollars at the Auxiliary Services Housing Handbook or at the page on How to add Flex Dollars.

To setup an department account with Pharos print & copy contact the IT Helpdesk.
