Computer Network and Acceptable Use Practices: Privileges and Responsibilities
Students are expected to read, understand, and follow UTC's "Acceptable Use Practices" policy. The following is not an all-inclusive list but rather a summary of common examples. The full description of Acceptable Use Practices for UTC is available online at: www.utc.edu/Administration/WalkerTeachingResourceCenter/AUP/
- Disrupting network access for others, whether deliberately or unintentionally. Examples: infected computers flooding the network with spam or viruses, P2P file-sharing applications that consume more than a fair share of network resources, improperly configured network devices.
- Using technology resources to violate any State or federal law including copyright and license agreements. Examples: illegally downloading, storing, and/or sharing copyrighted materials, viewing child pornography, theft of confidential information.
- Transmitting abusive, threatening, or harassing messages, chain letters, spam, or other communications prohibited by law or University policy.
- Unauthorized attempts to scan or gain access to systems, accounts, network traffic or information not intended for you.
Violations may result in termination of access, disciplinary review, expulsion, and possible legal action. If you receive notice of an AUP violation, follow the instructions in the notice or contact the Computer Help Desk at 425-4000 as soon as possible.
Students are advised to keep computers safe from viruses and spyware by following these guidelines.
- Keep Windows updated by visiting windowsupdate.microsoft.com
- Have an up-to-date antivirus.
- Be careful where you click. Never open e-mail attachments you weren't expecting. Don't click on pop-up ads or install things you don't really need.
- Run spyware removers/blockers regularly.
- Avoid P2P file sharing. Almost all "free" music and file-sharing applications install spyware and viruses.
- Be careful who you let use your computer. Roommates, friends, and relatives may click or install things they should not.
- Don't share your usernames or passwords with anyone.
Students who believe their computer is infected may call the Help Desk at 425-4000 for assistance. If necessary, students may opt to make an appointment to bring PCs to the Help Desk in the UC Computer Lab where staff members will guide users through the reformat or disinfection process. Students should plan to be present with the computer and be an active participant in the process, which typically takes around two hours.
The Division of Continuing Education and Public Service provides high quality, lifelong learning opportunities to individuals seeking personal growth or professional development programs, workshops, certificates, and/or college degrees to students who are located off-campus.
