Netiquette Rule

Approved By and Date:Executive Leadership Team03-30-2015


Netiquette:  Refers to "Network Etiquette."   As you engage in online communications, including but not limited to emails, forum discussions and chat sessions at the college, it is essential that you communicate effectively with faculty, staff, and other students.


When interacting online it is easy to lose perspective that we are in-fact communicating with other human beings.  In order to best minimize and hopefully avoid any miscommunications, and to best ensure that your communications within the college environment are both productive and successful, please be mindful of the following tips:


 General Computer and Network Usage:


Please consider the privacy of others and only conduct online communications from your own user account.  Also, do not allow anyone to use your password or share your account.  Accessing another student’s account or allowing another student to access yours is not only poor Netiquette, but is also a violation of the SCC Computer and Network Use Agreement.
