Computer Crimes Policy

Information technology plays an increasingly important role in determining the ultimate success of the College in the accomplishment of goals. It touches every academic discipline and administrative service provided by the College. Students encounter information systems and services from the moment they contact the College by telephone until their eligibility for graduation is computed and their degree awarded. Since basic computer literacy is a fundamental requirement, students invariably encounter computers in the classroom. Computer technology is increasingly used in all majors and programs. Actual techniques and systems used by professionals are simulated in the classroom as much as possible. In all aspects of education, Otis College is committed to excellence, and achieving excellence requires the increased use of technology. 

 
Legal Precedence and Definitions

Senate Bill 304 (Computer Crime) has been Chaptered (1076) and incorporated in the Penal Code and has a direct bearing on existing campus policy concerning appropriate use of computer resources. The legislation provides that ". . . a community college, state College, or academic institution accredited in this state is required to include computer-related crimes as a specific violation of college or College student conduct policies and regulations that may subject any student to specified disciplinary sanctions . . ." The Trustees have implemented this portion of the legislation by adding the following to Title 5, Section 41301 relating to Student Discipline:
