For Graduate Students
The Pratt Portal:ID offers design news and announcements curated by and for Pratt ID students. It's also the hub where you can find links to the Insider's Guide, PrattList, and other resources to come. The Insider's Guide student handbook is a comprehensive walkthrough of the Pratt MID program. If you have a question, the odds are that the answer is here.
The Prattlist is a Craigslist-style discussion hub where students can show housing listings, sell books and school supplies, and have ID-related discussions.
Buying materials will now be done through your PrattCard at the following location:
The PrattCard allows you to add money with a credit or debit card online. There is also a machine in the Bursar's office that accepts cash. This service is what is used in the computer labs for printing and will now be used in the ID department for RPLab 3D printing and purchases for materials in the shop. Materials can be purchased in the shop, directly from a shop technician. Blue Cards will be phased out by the end of the fall 2010 semester. Please use your Blue Cards now, as they are no longer valid after the fall.
Rapid Prototyping Lab 3D Printing
The RP Lab will continue to price jobs for you. Please bring your RP Lab job and payment information to the main office to pay for printing using your PrattCard account. After 6pm, jobs can be paid for in the 5th floor woodshop using the PrattCard, up until 10pm.
You can pay for your RP Lab jobs at the following locations and hours:
ID Office: 9:00AM - 6:00PM
ID Woodshop: 6:00PM -10:00PM
Checks will no longer be acceptable to pay for RPLab jobs. Please make sure you have enough funds in your PrattCard account to cover the cost of your print job.
