Technology Use Policy

Staff and students at AIU are advised to use proper social and professional etiquette when using the technology systems of AIU. Use of the network implies consent for monitoring of traffic that is necessary for smooth administration of the resource. AIU does not condone the use of inappropriate language when communicating to instructors, staff, or students.

Any part of AIU’s technology resources must not be used to produce, view, store, replicate, distribute, or transmit harassing, obscene, or offensive materials. This includes, but is not limited to, material from the Internet, screen savers, or any printed material. There is zero tolerance for any student, faculty, or staff who violates this policy. Any student who violates this policy may be subject to immediate dismissal.

University technology resources shall not be used for purposes that cause excessive strain, directly or indirectly, on technology resources or unwarranted and unsolicited interference with use of technology systems. Engaging in any use that would interfere with another student’s and/or employee’s work or disruption of the intended use of technology resources is prohibited. Penalties for misuse of e-mail, Internet, or any other part of AIU’s technology system are to be determined by the University Administration. AIU technology resources should only be used to accomplish University-specific tasks, goals, and learning objectives. No other use is sanctioned. Please refer to the Student Handbook for additional information.
