Rights and Responsibilities
Network and Internet access are privileges provided to Mt Sierra College students solely for academic purposes. When connected to the network, students have the right to expect their computers will be free from unauthorized access through the network. All students have a right to expect the products of their intellectual efforts will be safe from destruction, theft, tampering, or other abuse. In order to protect their files, students are responsible for limiting share access, for setting appropriate passwords, and for keeping their passwords confidential.
Network access is provided to students for intellectual and academic purposes; recreational use of the network resources is not allowed. Unnecessary traffic can impact the speed of the network and the learning process for other students. Computer and network use during class is permitted only at the Instructor’s discretion. Accessing, streaming, downloading, uploading, or sending copyrighted, sexually oriented or offensive material is expressly prohibited. Mt Sierra College reserves the right to monitor, review, and disclose all such data and communications as it deems appropriate. Users should have no expectation of privacy when using such resources belonging to the College.
College-owned computers and related equipment are the responsibility of the Information Systems Department (I.S.) and designated lab assistants. These employees are expected to respect the privacy of computer users and maintain the equipment to enhance the educational experience for our students at Mt Sierra. However, the I.S. department is authorized to access user files or suspend services without notice to protect the integrity of the system. The I.S. department may also examine accounts suspected of unauthorized use or misuse, or that have been corrupted or damaged. All violations will be researched, and violators determined to have committed deliberate misuse or abuse of these systems will be disciplined as deemed appropriate by the Academics Department following the guidelines of the Academic Integrity Policy. Serious violations, such as unauthorized access to any system other than one’s own, may lead to dismissal from the College.
