All students will be held responsible for understanding and adhering to the guidelines. In fact, all students are required to read and accept these guidelines as a requirement for creating a NetID account. If you need any help understanding these guidelines or have a question on how they apply, don't hesitate to ask in the Open Lab.You are responsible for the following:
- Log out when done: You are responsible for logging out of your NSCC NetID. In order for the systems to work properly and keep your files secure, you must log out when done, if leaving your computer for any period of time, or before logging into another computer.
- Keeping your password safe: If you think your password has been compromised, change it right away. If you are unable to change it using the web interface, please see a staff member in the open computer lab (IB 3303) as soon as possible to reset the password.
- Back up your files: Backing up the files in your personal storage drive to CD/RW, ZIP, floppy, or some other media. NSCC makes every effort to keep the files in your personal store intact but is not responsible for any potential hardware or software failures that may result in the loss of your files. It is your responsibility to keep copies of all items stored in the personal storage drive.
- Leaving? When you are no longer enrolled, your NetID will become unavailable. Make alternate arrangements for permanent email and data storage. Transfer any data you wish to keep elsewhere before the end of the quarter. Your @northseattle.edu email address will go away, and may even be assigned to someone else.
- No copyrighted or otherwise illegal materials: You are responsible for the content of the files in your personal store. (Be aware that installing file sharing programs and then downloading MP3, or other copyrighted materials is illegal.)
- Understand the EIR Policy: Reading and adhering to the SCCD Electronic Information Resource (EIR) Policy
