Computer Use

Computers and computer systems owned by BTC are to be used only for academic/instructional activities, and other official college business. They are intended for use by BTC students and employees.

Students will be provided login identification and a temporary password at the time of the initial student registration. Usernames and passwords are unique to individuals and must not be shared. Every student is responsible for any activity under his/her username and password. Therefore, students should always log off a computer after each use. Computer users will be prompted every 180 days to change passwords.

Any use of college computer equipment and systems for illegal, unethical, or fraudulent purposes is prohibited. Displaying on college equipment or systems, or transmitting or distributing any material that is demeaning to persons of a particular gender, race, creed, ethnicity, disability, sexual orientation, or other protected class is considered harassment and is prohibited.

Students who violate computer use policies may lose privileges to the college equipment and systems, and/or may be subject to disciplinary action. BTC reserves the right to monitor the computer system and computer network use.
