SNU Information Technology Responsibilities

Sierra Nevada University expects all users of our information technology to function in the same way as in the pre-electronic community, practicing the right of free speech and considering the rights of intellectual property in a responsible manner which respects the privacy, the opinions, and the property of others. Respect and courtesy are just as applicable to uses of IT as they are to the published and spoken word. Consequently, it is important for all Sierra Nevada IT users to behave in a responsible, ethical, and legal manner consistent with the College’s Mission.

Laptop Policy

All Sierra Nevada University students are required to have a laptop computer. Desktop computers will not be sufficient; students will need to bring a computer to most classes. Software and hardware requirements can be found on the Laptop Computer Requirements link above. Please note that some courses may require additional, specific software.

SNU does have public-access computers in Prim Library for general use, but these computers do not store any files or information. Students that use these computers will need a portable storage device.

Students may purchase software at discount prices through educational software vendors.
