There are multiple places to pay-for-print in the library:
Printing is 10¢ for black and white and 35¢ for color. B&W is default, so you wil have to change the printer to color in the print settings page.

The Print, Copy, Scan & Fax Page also details where copiers, scanners, and fax machines can be found in the library and their cost.
Adding money to your SDSU card can be done at the Aztec Markets, via credit card online, or at DART machines located throughout the library.
