Morris College's computer policies seek to achieve the legitimate and proper use of the institution's computing resources. These policies are intended to legitimately maximize the interests and rights of all computer users.
Computing resources that are the property of Morris College are intended for support of the instructional and administrative programs of the institution. Examples of computing resources are system and campus computing facilities and networks, electronic mail, Internet services, computer laboratories, office and residence hall workstations and the College's databases. Users of the College's computing services, databases and facilities are responsible for appropriate and legal use. Appropriate use of system computing resources means:

However, if the security and operation of the computing systems or networks are jeopardized, access may be immediately cancelled.
