High Bandwidth Abuse Process

Actions taken by UMC for high bandwidth violations:

 

Why:
The University of Minnesota, Crookston samples bandwidth usage on our campus network in order to provide quality of service for all users. Excessive bandwidth use interferes with UMC's educational mission.

Actions Taken:
If an individual computer is using excessive bandwidth (more than is used by the University's servers) the following action(s) will be taken:

1st Offense: User's access is disabled. Incident is logged at the Helpdesk. Users who have lost access must visit the Helpdesk (Kiehle 131) and must complete these steps to regain access:

Step 1: User's UMC issued computer will be reloaded. User is responsible for backing up all files, including items such as their math program(s). This is at your own expense (CDs, USB jump drive).

Step 2: User must complete the Copyright/High Bandwidth form. Once these steps are completed, access will be enabled within one business day.

2nd offense: repeat step 1
3rd offense: repeat step 1
4th offense: repeat step 1
5th offense: ACCESS DISABLED. Individual is referred to the Student Conduct Code Coordinator for further disciplinary action. Student access will remain disabled until authorization by Student Conduct Code Coordinator is provided to Technology Support Services.

 

NOTE: Individual arrangements will be made with policy violators whose access has been disabled in order to accommodate instructional related computing activities. It shall be the responsibility of the student to request this accommodation from UMC Technology Support Services.

Individual's failing or refusing to complete the above steps will be referred to the Student Conduct Code Coordinator for further disciplinary action. Student access will remain disabled until authorization by Student Conduct Code Coordinator is provided to Technology Support Services.
