Student Handbook

 

Acceptable Use

Legally and fairly use Cascadia’s technology resources.

 

The policy applies to both students and staff.

Acceptable Use Policy

  • The Acceptable Use Policy is a collection of policies approved by our Board of Trustees on how students, staff, and faculty are able to legally, ethically, and fairly use Cascadia’s technology resources.
  • The policy defines the legal rights of Cascadia in reference to their computer systems, it defines the rights of the users and their data, it states that only legal, licensed copies of software are permitted to be installed on campus computers, and it holds all users responsible for using the computers in an ethical manner as defined by state law.
  • Also defined in the policy is Cascadia’s ability to monitor all systems to ensure that no one user is unfairly monopolizing network resources and creating a decline in the service provided to other users.
  • By adhering to the rules of the Acceptable Use Policy, you help ensure that Cascadia’s network and your accounts aren’t subject to unnecessary downtime or legal action. Here are the three most important parts of the policy:

Acknowledgment and Acceptance

By logging into a Cascadia computer you are acknowledging and accepting the terms of use as set forth in the Acceptable Use Policy.

 

We recommend that you read through the Acceptable Use Policy before utilizing any of Cascadia’s network resources.

 

If you have a question or concern that you don’t feel is covered in the Acceptable Use Policy, please email it to the Help Desk at helpdesk@cascadia.edu.

 

Do's and Don'ts

 

We understand that the legal wording of the Acceptable Use Policy can be confusing, so we’ve created a list of Do’s and Don’ts in response to the most frequently asked questions.

 

Do's

  • Use Cascadia’s computer and network resources to enhance your learning, teaching, and overall campus experience. Currently, Cascadia’s computer network consists of 284 student computers and 241 staff and faculty computers. You’re bound to find one that’s open for use.

  • Save your class exercises, tests, projects, and assignments on the network storage space allotted to you. Cascadia performs regular backups to ensure that data saved on our network remains recoverable.

  • Take advantage of the broad spectrum of software we have installed on the computers to complete assignments and assist you in your learning and teaching outcomes.

  • Use the internet to research your topics of study. Download documents, images, and materials for use in your assignments and projects. Just be sure to take note of where you got the material so you can cite it properly.


Don'ts

  • Don’t share your Cascadia user ID or password with a friend. Your account is for your personal use only.
  • Don’t test Cascadia’s system/network security measures. This sort of exploratory activity would be considered a serious infraction of the Acceptable Use Policy.
  • Don’t host personal or commercial websites. The college systems cannot be used for commercial or political purposes. This is a state mandate to protect the taxpayers' investment.
  • Don’t use Cascadia email accounts for mass mailing. This would fall under the restrictions set forth by the state mandate of not using the systems for commercial or political activity and it would monopolize network bandwidth.
  • Don’t use peer-to-peer software on campus. Applications like Limewire, Bearshare, Wrapster, and Gnutella create peer-to-peer networks. These networks pose a serious security risk to the college and consume an incredible amount of bandwidth. The same applies for internet gaming.
  • Don’t install personal software or free downloaded software onto Cascadia’s computers. Not only is this a violation of the Acceptable Use Policy, but it also has the potential for violating the End User License Agreement of the software. Loading new software can also cause the existing programs to run poorly. Some popular programs found on the Internet can also open up portals for hacking into Cascadia systems.
  • Don’t copy or rip a friend’s music CDs. The music on the CD is copyrighted and this is an illegal activity.
  • Don’t rip personal CDs. It’s no longer a copyright violation, but ripped music consumes large amounts of disk storage and the college would see this as a misuse of shared resources.

Change of Address and Name Procedure

Keep your address and name current.

 

Addresses can be updated online or in person. Name changes must be submitted in person.

Updating your Address and Contact Information

It is the student’s responsibility to notify the college of their current address in order to receive important documents such as credit card receipts, transcripts, and diplomas or certificates.

 

Update your address online through the Student Address Information (student ID and PIN required).

 

*Please note that if you are a financial aid student, you will also need to update email or phone information in-person with their office as the online system does not update the financial aid management system with this information.

Name Changes

To change your name shown on Cascadia’s records, go to the front counter in Kodiak Corner and submit:

  • New legal photo ID such as a driver's license or state ID
  • Social security card with new legal name
  • Acceptable proof of name change (marriage certificate or court order)

Strong Passwords

Protecting your user account.

 

The Washington State Department of Information Services requires a strong password for all user accounts.

Strong Password Guidelines

To protect information and resources, the Washington State Department of Information Services requires strong passwords for all user accounts, including Cascadia network accounts.
 

To be considered “strong,” a password must:

  • Be at least 8 characters long.
  • Contain characters from each of the following groups: 

     

Group Examples
Letters (uppercase AND lowercase) A, B, C... AND  a, b, c...

Numerals

 

0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7...

Special characters (all characters that are not letters or numerals)

` ~ ! @ # $ % ^ & _ + - = { } | [ ] : “ ; ‘ < > ? , .
  • Be significantly different from previously used passwords.

  • NOT contain your name or any part of your full name.

  • NOT contain personal identifiers such as birthdays, social security numbers, or pet’s names.

  • NOT be a word found in the dictionary, even if it is spelled backwards.

Examples of Strong Passwords 

A password should be difficult for someone else to guess but easy for you to remember. A good way to choose a strong password is to take an easily remembered phrase, then combine the first letter of each word in the phrase with numbers or characters (including punctuation and/or spaces). 

 

Creating a password in some way from a phrase from a movie, a quote, a song, or a nursery rhyme can be a good strategy for remembering.

 

Here are some examples of phrases and passwords (please do not use these examples!):

  • Phrase: I love to drive my 1969 Mustang!
  • Password: Iltdm69M!
  • Phrase: I think, therefore I am
  • Password: {It,t4Ia}
  • Phrase: To be or not to be, that is the question
  • Password: 2b0ntb,T1tq
  • Phrase: Password Enforcer
  • Password: -=Pw N4cR=-

Student Records

Learn about the confidentiality of your personal information.

 

Student records are protected by federal law, but you may authorize the disclosure of information to specific persons.

Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974

Cascadia College has adopted procedures in compliance with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) of 1974 (20 U.S.C. and 1232g) and its implementing regulation (34 C.F.R. § 99).

View Cascadia’s complete FERPA policy in the Washington Administrative Code

 

The Act requires Cascadia to:

  • Provide students access to their own educational records
  • Permit students to challenge their records on the grounds that they are inaccurate, misleading, or otherwise in violation of the student’s privacy or other rights
  • Obtain written consent before releasing certain information
  • Notify the student of these rights

In response to outside inquiries for information on students, Cascadia’s policy is ONLY to confirm:

  • Dates of enrollment
  • Area of study
  • Degree or certificate earned

Exceptions include:

  • Subpoenas
  • Emergency situations
  • Compliance with the Solomon Amendment and Department of Education requests through the Patriot Act
  • Requests from the National Student Clearinghouse

Release of Information

To protect student privacy, photo identification is required to:

  • View educational records
  • Receive copies of educational records
  • Change student information
  • Enroll in classes
  • Drop classes
  • Withdraw from classes

Students may authorize disclosure of additional information to specific persons who provide photo identification by submitting a completed and signed Release of Information form to the front counter in Kodiak Corner.

Social Security Number

Students’ social security numbers (SSN) are confidential, and under FERPA, the college will protect them from unauthorized use and disclosure. In compliance with state and federal requirements, a student’s SSN will not be authorized for identification purposes except for state and federal financial aid, Hope/Lifetime Learning tax credits, academic transcripts, assessment, accountability research, or as otherwise stated by law. Cascadia assigns each student an alternate identification number upon application to the school and/or class registration.

 

If students choose not to provide their social security number they must complete a non-disclosure form. The Internal Revenue Service can impose a $50 fine to the student for non-disclosure.

Solomon Amendment

Under Public Law 104-208, Cascadia is directed by the federal government to provide the Armed Forces such information as name, address, telephone number, date of birth, level of education, major and/or degree received, and prior military experience for all students.

 

If you do not wish this information to be released, submit a written request to the front counter in Kodiak Corner. This request will prohibit your name from being published in all college-related publications.

Holds on Student Records

Students who have been placed on academic suspension or who have outstanding debts owed to the college (including parking fines, library fines, or instructional materials due) will not be allowed to register or make program changes until these have been cleared.

 

Likewise, transcripts, certificates and degrees, or diplomas will not be released until all debts are cleared. Releasing a hold on records may take up to two business days to process.
