Because the use of computers and computing facilities is central to the learning experience at USC, it is important for all students to understand the policies governing the use of computing resources and appropriate behaviors in an electronic community. To that end, the university has developed a set of computing policies for members of the university community, regarding electronic communications, the use of computing resources at USC, compliance with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) and other related topics.
All of these policies are available online at policy.usc.edu or cio.usc.edu/copyright/policy. Students are expected to read and abide by all policies located at this site and check this page for updates, as these policies are subject to change. All electronic information under this Website supersedes all printed computing policies.
