GVSU Computing Student Account Agreement

BY USING YOUR ACCOUNTS, YOU HAVE AGREED TO THE CONDITIONS LISTED BELOW AND ALL ARTICLES AND POLICIES OF THE STUDENT CODE.

Grand Valley State University makes available resources for students to access electronic mail, lab software and the Internet for use in pursuing the academic mission of the University. This assumes that access to such services is essential to the educational experience. The owner of the accounts is held responsible for all use of the accounts. Accounts are not to be shared among multiple users.

STUDENT NETWORK ACCOUNTS

Each student currently enrolled or accepted at GVSU will automatically receive an Academic Network Account. This account allows access to all computer labs, email, dial up access, Library access, Blackboard courseware and network disk space. This account will remain active while the student is enrolled at GVSU. It will be terminated upon graduation or non-enrollment.

ACCOUNT SERVICES

Users are granted access to services only for so long as they abide by GVSU Conditions of Use and as stated in the Student Code book  "Section 206.06: Computer Usage". No person shall gain use of the University's computer system without proper authorization. Any attempt by a user to gain access to another person's network account, private network drive, or restricted areas on the GVSU computer system shall be considered a violation of the GVSU Student Code, regardless of whether or not it resulted in significant personal embarrassment to the person whose privacy was violated. For information regarding electronic mail, refer to the GVSU Electronic Mail Policy.

RESPONSES TO CLAIMED VIOLATIONS

When any report of suspected mail violation is made, it will be dealt with as defined by the rules in Article III - Judicial Process in the Grand Valley State University Student Code. Information Technology may suspend an account throughout the duration of judicial review.
