Recharge Computing Accounts
Create a department-funded recharge account.
Departments at UC San Diego may set up a department-funded recharge account for computing, printing, or plotting with Educational Technology Services.
Students at UC San Diego may set up a prepaid personal printing account.
Poster printing with Recharge Accounts
The Cplot large-format plotter is available only to support UCSD Academic Instruction and Student Research.
Print activity for any other purposes (e.g. administrative, self-supporting programs, extracurricular activities) or situations requiring significant technical support or rapid turnaround should be directed to a commercial printing service such as Imprints or FedEx Office
New Account Application
Please complete all the fields below and submit the form.
Completed and accurate submissions received before 4:30pm on business days are generally processed by the end of the day.
Submissions outside of that time are processed as soon as possible, usually the following business day.
Please be patient after submitting—it will take us a moment to validate your input.
Once your application has been processed, recharge account usernames and passwords will be assigned by ETS and transmitted to the individual account holders via email, along with links to our plotter documentation.
All account holders are responsible for understanding and obeying the ETS Acceptable Use Policies.
Please have the primary account holder or the fund manager send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org if you need any of these changes made to your recharge account.
Please be sure to include the primary account username in your email.

- Replace the IFIS index

If neither the primary account holder or fund manager is available, an existing subaccount holder may request these changes if the primary account holder and fund manager are CC'd on the email and those email addresses match our records.
