Printing from SPIRE

Tips

  • These printing guidelines may not work for everyone due to the variety of browser versions and settings.
  • Check the SPIRE logon page for supported browsers. Other browsers may work with SPIRE, but we cannot contact the vendor for help with compatibility issues for unsupported browsers.
  • To remove Header/Footer text from printed pages, open Page Setup from your browser's File menu. Click Margins & Header/Footer tab.  Choose 'blank' under Headers & Footers in all six drop-down boxes.  Click OK.
  • Use PDF or Excel printing options when available.
  • Students: To print your Academic Requirements Report, use the PDF version for best results.
  • Instructors: If you must print grade rosters, use the Print Posted Grade Rosters feature in your Faculty Center. Only print grade rosters if necessary, e.g., for departmental requirements. Keep them under lock and key when not in use; shred when no longer needed.
  • Instructors, Advisors, & Staff: If you must print Unofficial Transcripts, Academic Requirements Reports, or Query results, use the PDF or Excel versions for best results. Only print these items if necessary. Keep them under lock and key when not in use; shred when no longer needed.
  • For further assistance: Contact the IT Help Center, or email spire-support@oit.umass.edu.
