All students can print to all Sharp MFDs in public areas at any of the Pepperdine Southern California campuses (click here to learn about print credit for students at school of law). This includes the color-enabled Sharp MFD in the Law Library public area. Printing in color or black and white is possible and a document with a mix of color and black and white pages will only incur the higher cost for color on the pages where there is color.
Typically, print jobs are sent via the web using a web-browser interface. In nearly all circumstances, your document that you want to print must be in PDF format.
You transfer/upload your PDF file to the print.pepperdine.edu site and select your parameters (number of copies, etc.). If you want to print in color, you want to select a “findmecolor” solution (see video here) or “findmebw” for black and white.
Then once the document is uploaded, you go to the copier nearest you — Law School? go to the Law Library and see the copiers near the public services desk.
Swipe your ID card or type in your Wavenet credentials, select the print job you want to “release” and you have your document!
On the first day of each term students at the School of Law will receive $30 of non-refundable, non-transferable print/copy credit to be used through the University’s copy/print system called PaperCut.
PaperCut manages the copy and print functions of the Sharp Multi-function printer/copiers.
Note that the credit provided by the School of Law each term does not carry forward if a balance remains at the end of the term. The first day of a term is the first day of classes. The last day of a term is the day before the start of the next term (first day of classes for Fall, Spring, Summer).
New students will not receive credit until the first day of classes.
The credit provided by the School of Law can only be used for copy or print jobs. This credit cannot be used at the cafeteria for food purchases.
When the credit applied to a student’s PaperCut account is exhausted before the end of the term, further copier or print use must be covered by funds provided by the student in their Waves Cash Global account. If a student has funds in that account, there is no need for any action to be taken as the system will automatically charge the copy or print usage against the available funds on deposit in that account. If there are no funds in a student’s Waves Cash Global account, funds must be added to make copies or print.
Both TWEN and Courses are utilized by both students and faculty for effective classroom communication. Read on to learn more about these course management systems.
TWEN, The West Education Network (http://lawschool.westlaw.com): This is an online system where students can access course materials, submit assignments via Drop Box, sign-up for office hours (if available), take polls and quizzes, participate in class discussions, and exchange e-mail messages with instructors and peers. The extent of your TWEN use will depend on your professors’ course objectives and goals.
Register on TWEN: In order to use TWEN you must first register your username and password. If you have already done this in order to use Westlaw, then you do not need to re-register for TWEN . Westlaw, Westlaw Next and TWEN are all included in the same web site and registration is only required once. You should have received your activation code at Orientation or via email (your Pepperdine account).If you feel that you have not received an activation code, email email@example.com with the subject line: WESTLAW ACTIVATION CODE.
Watch the video below for step-by-step instruction on how to register your password on Westlaw.
View/Access Courses on TWEN: In order to view and access all of your courses, you must first ADD the course manually. Watch the video below for step-by-step instructions on how to add courses in TWEN.
Coursesis Pepperdine’s open-source, learning management system that offers faculty and students a collaborative online environment to support teaching andlearning. Basic features of Courses allow faculty to post syllabi, grades, and announcements. For more information, visit the University’s Courses Community page. Watch the video below to learn more about the basic features of Courses and view the user interface. For step-by-step instructions and a list of FAQs, please visit Pepperdine’s Courses Student Guide.
The Law library can be one of the most valuable assets to you during your time in law school. It’s value goes beyond your law education, as it can be a great tool for such activities like Law Review and Moot Court as well as preparing for your careers as a whole. The catalog system contains records describing all the books, microforms, and journals in the law library and other selected libraries. Links are also provided which can take you directly to the web sites of other libraries both local and across the country.
True or False: It is against Pepperdine policy to reuse your Pepperdine password for any other web service.
It’s true, it is against Pepperdine policy to reuse your MyID password for other accounts or sites.
When you reuse your Pepperdine MyID password on Internet sites or accounts, you are making yourself vulnerable to attacks on your Pepperdine account, finances, grades, and more. In 2011 alone, millions of passwords were stolen from Internet sites like Sony Entertainment and Gawker. In 2012, more than 6 million LinkedIn passwords were compromised.
If you use the same password over many sites, the security of your password is only as good as the security of each individual website you use that password. And if one site is compromised, your entire web presence is compromised. Your author actually uses a different 20 digit passphrase for every single website he uses and its actually quite easy to manage using a Password Manager.
A password manager is a software program that securely stores many passwords and IDs with the goal of making multiple passwords easier to access and use. A password manager can be very helpful to people who have lots of passwords. Read more about password managers here.
If that seems like too much work, its probably because it is, but that all depends on how you value your security. Strong passwords take a hacker with lots of computing power a very long time to guess. And if all your passwords are different, having your password compromised on LinkedIn just means that you only have to change that password and not have to worry about your Pepperdine account, Bank account, or whatever password that you may also be using that password on.
If the thieves find a connection to Pepperdine, they will use your account to send spam or attack your identity. This has already happened at Pepperdine!
Hurray! You’ve graduated from Pepperdine Law! The last thing on your mind is your Pepperdine Email account, but there are some things you need to know…
After graduation a process starts that begins with your status changing from student to alumnus. This process involves a file transfer that takes place sometimes weeks after graduation. Sure, you have the diploma but the system doesn’t recognize you as an alumnus until that file is transferred from the student system to the alumni system. Typically this takes place about a month after the date of your graduation. That’s when all the automated stuff starts up.
On the fifteenth day of the month immediately after your graduation date you will get an email to your student email account. This email will give you the instructions and an important link you will need to setup your alumni email account.
Note that student email accounts are deleted 90 days after the student’s last enrolled semester (90 days from the time of your entry into the alumni system — typically less than a month after Graduation day).
Once an account is deleted/deactivated the data/emails in that account it is not recoverable.
But there’s good news. You’re an alumnus now! Alumni may obtain a free, email account through Pepperdine’s Alumni Association. You can find more information on Alumni Email at this website.
Part of this process also includes instructions on how to easily migrate your Pepperdine Google Drive contents to a new Alumni Google Drive account!
After your student email address expires, no mail will be received at your student address. To make a smooth transition, the Alumni Association recommends:
Set up your new alumni e-mailaddress immediately when you get that email noted above.
Forward your mail in Wavenet to a new email address — that new alumni address or another one you prefer.
Set up an out-of-office message in your Pepperdine Email (accessed through Wavenet) account informing all your contacts of your graduation and of your new email address. Log into Wavenet click on Options, and then update your Out of Office Assistant.
Welcome to the incredibly usefully and incessantly expanding world of Google! Here, you will learn about some of the relevant Google Apps that may help you throughout not only your education career, but also your future life.
You can access Google Apps through your @pepperdine.edu account. Google Apps includes the following components: Gmail, Sheets, Calendar, Sites, Google Drive (formerly Google Docs), Google +, Hangouts, Groups, Contacts, and many more. To learn more about these components and how they will be useful to you at Pepperdine School of Law, please watch the video at the bottom of the page.
Google Drive is a very useful tool that can be accessed anytime, from anywhere, via the internet or the Google Drive App. Some of the feature of Google Drive allow you to:
Share files with people, such as meeting minutes, class notes, and task lists
Collaborate on conference presentations with colleagues
Edit student papers with in-text comments
Backup files (you can never have too many copies!)
Work from home without the need of Remote Desktop or your Work Computer
You can even use Google Drive to create and share documents, spreadsheets, and presentations online. Although Google Drive has its own applications, you can download the Google files to your desktop and they will open in Microsoft Word, Excel, and PowerPoint. Collaborate on projects without the hassle of emailing files and version tracking. Multiple Users can edit the Google files at the same time, without conflict. Revisions are saved automatically and Google Drive has a revision tracking feature so you can see what changes were made, when.
Google Drive can also be used as an online repository for all of your important documents. These documents can then be accessed from any computer with Internet access at any time. Watch this video to learn how you can upload documents to Google Drive as well as convert documents (i.e., doc, pdf, docx, html, and other files) into Google Documents.
Google Docs is the informal predecessor of Google Drive, if you will. Google Docs allows you to create documents from scratch or from pre-set templates as well as sort your already created documents.
Through Templates, folks at Pepperdine using Google Apps can now share private templates for presentations, documents (like stationary or departmental memos) and spreadsheets. We now have our own private template gallery. Anything you make in Google Docs (or import into Docs from Word, etc) can be offered as a template, shared and rated by the Pepperdine community.
Google Docs has also upped their collaboration tools through quick and easy comments that can be placed on selected portions of a document. If you’ve been staying out of the Cloud, there are some real incentives to get in now.
Google Sheets is a free online spreadsheet tool that is similar to Microsoft Excel. This tool has fewer formatting features that its software-based counterpart, but can be accessed from any computer with Internet access. You can also share spreadsheets with others and save the spreadsheet as multiple file formats including (but not limited to) XLS, PDF, and HTML. Watch this video to learn more about Google Spreadsheets.
Google Slides is a free, online presentation tool that you can use to create, edit, present, and share slideshows. It is very similar to Microsoft PowerPoint, with fewer formatting features. Much like most other Google Apps, Google Slides allows you to collaborate on slideshow presentation with unlimited users. Click here to watch a video on the basics of creating Google Presentations.
Google Calendar is Google’s scheduling calendar service that can assist you with time-management through easy organization and helpful reminders. This is nothing short of the most open and configurable calendar offering available today. And while there is a wealth of things you might never do, it never feels like that power gets in the way. If you just want to login and check your appointments and type in new ones you can do that. If you want to go a step farther and have it email you a daily appointment list, that’s available. If you want your cell phone to alert you, that’s just another click away.
Google Hangouts is a platform where you can communicate with multiple people through messaging, SMS, video/audio chat and VOIP. It can be challenging to locate and contact other members of such a large community as Pepperdine; with community integration, this is a gem. Even better, with no install or configuration like Skype, you simply login and start talking.
Google Sites is a free and easy way to create and share webpages as well as a nice place to brainstorm and manage projects. Its an easy basic wiki withalmost no ramp-up time needed due to no real training being required. Just decide a name for your knowledge base and go. To learn more about Google Sites, click here.
Please watch the video below to learn more about these components and how they will be useful to you at Pepperdine School of Law.

Using our new print system here at Pepperdine can be a bit of a challenge at times. Particularly if you just want to print a few pages of a word document.
Since the web interface for printing requires PDF files to print, you may find yourself looking for an easy way (any way?) to print selected pages without buying an expensive copy of Adobe Acrobat Pro.
Luckily for MAC users, there is a simple way to accomplish this, by utilizing the thumbnail view from within the Preview Application.
With a document open in preview, select the Thumbnail view in the side bar. Command-click the page thumbnails you would like to select for printing. Conversely, you can Command-click to deselect a page as well.
Once all desired pages have been selected, you will click File > Print from the menu bar, and chose the Selected Pages In Sidebar option. Using the PDF drop down menu, you will now create a new PDF of your selected pages for printing.
You will be prompted to name the file, I suggest giving the file a unique name, and saving the file to your desktop so it’s easy to find and upload to the file server at print.pepperdine.edu.
For more information on printing to the Sharp Copiers please go HERE. If you would like to see this process in action please find a brief video walkthrough on preparing select pages for printing utilizing MACOS’s Preview Application.
