Code of Computing Practice
Access to the University’s technology resources is a privilege granted to University students. These resources include, but are not limited to: computer hardware, software, computer accounts, email accounts and local area networks, as well as connections to other computer networks via the Internet.
Users are expected to use these resources responsibly. Intentional failure to comply with University policies on acceptable use of information technology resources and computer labs will result in action that may include suspension of user privileges or other disciplinary action such as suspension or expulsion from the University. In addition, violations may result in referral for prosecution by local, state or federal authorities.
Students should read the Acceptable Use of Information Technology Resources Policy and the Guidelines for Use of APSU Computer Labs. These documents can be found online at www.apsu.edu/policy/4s_business_and_finance_policies/4029-acceptable-useinformation- technology-resources and in the Student Handbook and Calendar, which will be distributed and available to students at the beginning of the fall semester.
The main student computer lab is located in the Felix G. Woodward Library. There are more than 100 Dell computers and laser printers available for student use. Hours of operation, programs, software and available databases can be found at www.library.apsu.edu. Information about other computer labs on campus can be found at www.apsu.edu/csci/opportunities_resources/computer-laboratories.
