IT Disclaimer Summary

In order to fully participate in course instruction, Pace University students may be required to be familiar with and use information technology resources. While Pace does not currently require students to own personal or notebook computers, it is strongly encouraged.  Some programs/course may require a computer and additional peripherals such as a webcam/microphone.

 

Pace provides its students with Computer Resource Centers (CRCs)—available on a first-come, first-served basis—equipped with the necessary hardware for online or PC-required course assignments. In addition, the University provides network connectivity in public areas, classrooms and Libraries as well as in University-owned residence halls. Leased residence halls have slightly different network services. Classes are occasionally conducted in videoconferencing facilities located at Pleasantville, the Law School in White Plains, the Graduate Center, and the New York City campus. The instructor may not be physically in the same location as all of the students.

 

Pace University, through its internal Information Technology Services (ITS) and relationships with hardware, software, and communications service providers, makes every effort to maintain uninterrupted availability of information technology resources, including a secure and stable environment on the World Wide Web for distance learning courses, communications with professors, and access to University departments. However, information technology resources, communications (including e-mail), intranet, and the Internet may occasionally be interrupted or made unavailable by causes beyond the University's reasonable control. The University is not responsible for refund of any tuition or fees in the event of any such occurrence; neither shall the University be liable for any consequential damages as a result thereof. Instruction and/or coursework that are interrupted, delayed, or lost as a result of such occurrences shall be completed by arrangement acceptable to the professor and/or chair of an affected course.

 

The University is not responsible for any personal electronic equipment, including computers, brought onto the University premises. All students should connect their electrical/electronic equipment, including computers, to power surge protective devices to minimize potential damage to their personal property.

 

All users of Pace information technology are required to abide by Pace University's IT Appropriate Use Policy for Information Technology.

 

Students should be aware of the Higher Education Opportunity Act (HEOA) which outlines the policies for illegal uploading and downloading of copyrighted works through peer-to-peer (P2P) file sharing.
