Lab Policy:


In order to increase availability of machines for students who have class assignments, provide a quiet environment in which to do work and provide a consistent user interface for all software, users of computer equipment in CX300 and CX303 must observe the following rules:

  • APSU computing and networking resources are limited; therefore, the first priority is the fulfillment of academic instructional objectives for students using the computer facilities. Students engaged in non-academic pursuits will be asked to relinquish machines to students who need to do work for their classes.
  • A few computers in the CX303 lab have limited copies of specialized software. The computers are clearly marked. Students in classes that need that software will have priority on these computers.
  • Everyone using the lab must sign in and out completing all information on the lab usage form when implemented.
  • Keep it quiet and do your own work.  Do not ask others sitting near you for assistance.  If you have trouble with the equipment ask the lab worker for assistance. Lab workers will assist with machine and software related problems only.  They will not assist with program logic.
  • Do not download, modify, or delete any files on the hard drive of the microcomputer unless asked to do so by faculty in the Computer Science and IT Department.  Do not download any Instant Messaging, File Sharing, or any other types of programs. If there is software that you need for class assignments and it is not available, ask the lab attendant. 
  • Use your own USB devices or CD/DVD media to save your data when working with microcomputer applications. Do not save your work to the hard drive of the computer in the lab.
  • Do not save any modifications to Microsoft Windows Environment or any other software product.  This includes changing color schemes, wallpaper, menus, etc.
  • Respect copyright laws.  It is illegal to make copies of the software in the labs, except as provided for in specific licensing agreements.
  • You may print only 1 copy of a finished document.  Use a copying machine for additional copies.
  • Put your cell phone on vibrate or turn it off. If you receive a call, step out into the hall to talk.
  • No food, drinks, or tobacco products.
  • No minors which includes children
  • No Games
