Guidelines and Policies for Computer Use

Computer Use Policy

Information Technology & Innovation offers computing services on various computer systems at no charge to all members of the University community (i.e., faculty, students, and staff). The following delineates the current policies on software ownership, software copying, and gaining access to the computer facilities as well as a set of guidelines and responsibilities for the users of these resources.

The general principles underlying these policies and guidelines are that the computing facilities are a resource made available to the WCSU community for educational and research purposes. Users must assume responsibility for trying to minimize costs and be responsible in their use of these facilities.

The guidelines are not intended to be an exhaustive list of rules. Rather, these guidelines establish the spirit in which the facilities should be used.
