All users of SCC computing systems must read, understand, and agree to comply with the policies outlined in the SCC Computer Usage Policy and MCCD Computing Resource Standards ( Copies of these policies can also be obtained in the Student TechCenter (IT-100).

These policies are summarized as follows:
A. The computer systems, facilities, and accounts are owned and operated by SCC, and SCC reserves all rights, including termination of service, to any user.

C. Users may not transfer their computing privileges to others.
D. Users may not use a system to perform an illegal or malicious act, nor to wrongfully hide their identity or pose as another person.
E. Any user who finds a possible security lapse on any system is obligated to report it to the SCC IT department (email: or phone: (480) 423-6274, option 3) and not use this knowledge to damage resources, obtain additional resources, or gain unauthorized access to resources.
