    • Your guide to network use at WVC
    • PCPal Your guide to network use at WVC
      • WriteLab Policies (revised March 31, 2008)
        • These policies govern the use of student Electronic Information Resources (EIRs*) labs in the district. These labs include the library and any other instructional areas that provide student access to EIRs. Violations of these policies can result in prosecution and/or loss of student access to EIR labs.
        • A full account of the disciplinary action for violating these policies is in the WVC Student Handbook.

    • PCPal Your guide to network use at WVC
      • NO students can be in labs or computer-based classrooms without a WVC employee present.
      • The WriteLab is open only to registered students of WVC and those covered through cooperative agreements.
      • First priority for use of lab space and equipment goes to classes that have scheduled time in the lab.
      • Second priority goes to students doing homework and research for classes in which they are currently enrolled. WriteLab tutors will request that a student give up his/her position to another student with higher priority, and depending on demand for services, will impose a time limit.
    • PCPal Your guide to network use at WVC
      • Printouts must be academic work. Students may print one copy of any document not to exceed 25 pages per document. Collaborative work cannot exceed 25 pages per collaborator. (A four-student paper cannot exceed 100 pages.) Multiple copy printing is a violation of rules and procedures. These limits are clearly marked and enforced. Failure to comply with set printing limits may result in the loss of computer lab access.
      • Any use of the computers in Wenatchee Valley College labs must comply with the State of Washington’s Community and Technical College Network Acceptable Use Policy, which is wholly reproduced below. It is also posted on the wall in the computer labs.
    • PCPal Your guide to network use at WVC
      • Rude or offensive behavior will not be tolerated.
      • Accessing obscene, abusive, or offensive material is not allowed.
      • There shall be no food or drinks at any computer workstation.
      • No tobacco products in the lab.
      • No children in the lab.

    • PCPal Your guide to network use at WVC
      • Students must follow the procedures outlined in PC Pal.
      • Students may use only WVC *EIRs in the student labs and *EIR classrooms. No one but technology staff may ever connect an *EIR to our network. For example, students may not connect personal data assistants, cell phones, laptops, or other information devices that can download software to the WVC network. Memory Sticks that do not download software are acceptable. We have “read only” CD drives. We cannot burn to disk.
    • PCPal Your guide to network use at WVC
      • * Electronic Information Resources (EIRs): All electronic hardware, software and associated data that support or include the following: administrative information systems; desktop computing; library automation; multi-media, data, video and voice networks; phone terminals; voice mail; electronic mail (E-mail); Internet access; scanners; electronic publications, including video; or any similar electronic based medium.

      • Labs are open only to registered students of WVC and those covered through cooperative agreements.
      • Students may not modify, reconfigure, or tamper with any computer hardware or software, nor may they attempt to gain unauthorized access to any computer network. Attempting unauthorized access to computer networks is a violation of both state and federal laws.
      • Intentionally introducing a computer virus into any Wenatchee Valley College computer system is a violation of both state and federal laws.
      • First priority goes to classes that have scheduled time in the lab. Second priority is given to students doing homework and research for currently enrolled classes. A student may be requested to give up his/her position to another student with higher priority, and depending on demand for services, WVC Staff may impose a time limit.
    • Computer Lab Policies
      • Printouts are limited to academic work. Students may print one copy of any document. Multiple copy printing is a violation of policy and procedure. These limits will be clearly marked and enforced. Failure to comply with set printing limits may result in the loss of computer lab access. Students cannot print out multiple page web sites. Learn to copy and paste only the portion of a particular web site that is not in violation of copyright, and that most closely fulfills need.
      • Any use of the computers in Wenatchee Valley College labs must comply with the State of Washington’s Community and Technical College Network Acceptable Use Policy, which is wholly reproduced below. It is also posted on the wall in the computer labs.
      • These labs are for academic support work. They are not for net surfing.
      • *Electronic Information Resources (EIRs): All electronic hardware, software and associated data that support or include the following: administrative information systems; desktop computing; library automation; multi-media, data, video and voice networks; phone terminals; voice mail; electronic mail (E-mail); Internet access; data storage.
    • Community and Technical College Network Acceptable Use Policy
      • CTCNet shall be the name of the regional Internet connecting all of Washington State’s Community and Technical Colleges, State Board and the CTCenter. Colleges using CTCNet will directly benefit if services and facilities are used in ways which build overall system efficiencies, maximize accessibility of the Internet, and eliminate inappropriate traffic over the interconnected networks. As such, the following Acceptable Use Policy is in effect:
      •  
      • Use of CTCNet shall be solely for facilitating the exchange of information in furtherance of education and research, and otherwise be consistent with the purposes and objectives of the State of Washington Community and Technical Colleges, the State Board for Community and Technical Colleges of the State of Washington and the CTCenter.
      •  
      • CTCNet shall not be used to transmit any communication in any form (e.g. text, images, sound) where the content and/or meaning of the message or its transmission or distribution would violate any applicable law or regulation.
    • Community and Technical College Network Acceptable Use Policy
      • CTCNet shall not be used to transmit any communication in any form (e.g. text, images, sound) where the content and/or meaning of the message or its transmission or distribution is likely to be deemed obscene, abusive, or highly offensive to recipient(s).
      •  
      • Users of CTCNet shall promote efficient use of the public networks to minimize, and avoid if possible, creating congestion within or upon the networks thereby interfering with the work of other users of the networks. Further, users of CTCNet services shall respect the rights and property of all others and shall not improperly access, misappropriate or misuse the information/files of other users.
      •  
      • CTCNet shall not be used for commercial purposes. Advertising of commercial offerings is forbidden.
    • Community and Technical College Network Acceptable Use Policy
      • When using CTCNet for accessing sources beyond the CTCNet itself, users shall apply the CTCNet Acceptable Use Policy while navigating through and making use of those networks.
      •  
      • With advice/recommendations from the Internet Information Group (IIG) and the Standing Advisory Committee (SAC), the CTCenter is responsible for the modification and distribution of this Acceptable Use Policy.
      •  
      • Withdrawal of use privileges because of violations of this policy is the responsibility of the college or other agency which authorized that individual’s use of CTCNet and could result in discipline and/or termination of employment
