Class work takes priority over other uses of these computers.
Instructors can see every command you type and access or modify every file you save to our systems. It is sometimes necessary to access this information in order to keep the systems running properly, to investigate cheating, or to enforce other policies. Please do not store anything you don’t want others to see on our systems.
This means the CMSC systems should not be used as a means of circumventing campus security policies, accessing inappropriate web sites, distributing malicious software, or attacking other systems (except as required in your classes).
Make sure your files are adequately protected from copying and/or cheating by other students. Setting "711" permissions on your home directory is highly recommended.
We take many precautions to prevent data loss on these computers. However, no system is completely foolproof, so please make sure you have a separate copy of anything important. That includes the project you've been working on for months that took you hours to write and is due tomorrow.
We will keep your account active beyond the end of the term if you are registered for another CMSC course at that time, but otherwise, you should assume that your data could be deleted at any time after finals week.
Violation of any of these policies may result in immediate termination of your account. If warranted, other action (such as referral to the Honor or Judicial boards, campus police, or other authorities) may be taken. Please report system issues to marmorsteinrm (@longwood.edu).
