    like the exact documents and the writing on it?
    I had something really bad and personal going on last year, my tutor made me have a meeting with this woman that is trained to offer advices and such. I couldn't say it without crying so she suggested me to type or write and give it to her. My house printer's ink run out, so I had to print it in the school library.

    Maybe I'm thinking too much, but do you think they can what every students printing and we have to pay for it. Thank you

    They will be able to see the file name though when you print so I don't see whats stopping them from looking, but they won't.

    Not it isn't possible for them to do it via the printer. When you send a document to print, it goes into the print spooler (which is basically a queue of files waiting to print). After a document has been printed the printer erases it from the spooler so that other documents can be added onto the end of the queue. If it didn't do this then it'd run out of space and nobody would be able to print anything.

    The only way they will be able to read what you wrote in that letter is if you saved the document to one of the computers and they have access to it.
