Printing

All NMU students, faculty, and staff must have money (CatCa$h) in their NMU ID (WildCat Express Card) account to print on campus. The printers on campus are networked, so NMU students, faculty, and staff can print from almost any computer to a printer on campus.

The ATM for adding CatCa$h to a Wildcat Express Card is located in the library.

Adding CatCash to Wildcat Express Card

You can add CatCash to your NMU ID (Wildcat Express Card) via the automated teller located in the lobby of the library ($1 minimum). Additionally, you can add CatCash online with a credit card. There is a $20.00 minimum deposit when using a credit card. See the instructions below.

  1. Login to GET with your NMU id/password.
  2. First-time users will need to provide an NMU email address and a phone number.
  3. Once logged in, click the "Add CatCa$h" link and follow the directions. You have the option at the end to save your credit card information for future use.
  4. You can also have family or friends add CatCash to your WildCat Express Card. From the main Accounts menu, fill out the "Ask for Funds" section. The system will send an email to whomever you designate, allowing them to add CatCash to your account.
  5. In the event that you lose your WildCat Express card, use GET to report it lost. Your WildCat Express Card will then become inactive, preventing unauthorized use.
  6. Be sure to logout when you have completed your transactions.
