COMPUTER INFORMATION SERVICES
As a student at Northern Virginia Community College, you may
have access to and use of information technology applications,
services, and resources as part of your enrollment. As an enrolled
student, you are provided with a LAN (Local Area Network) official
VCCS account (EmplID/Student ID/NovaConnect ID) that assigns
you a student e-mail account, allows you to access campus computer
workstations, and to use the Student Information System (NovaConnect).
NovaConnect allows you to enroll and pay for courses using
the Web or telephone. You are responsible for checking your e-mail
regularly for College announcements on student services or messages
from instructors and classmates. In order to insure your privacy,
the College will use your official College e-mail address.
You can forward messages to another e-mail address if you choose.
The Virginia Community College System has established a student
ethics agreement for the use of college computer information
technology. Your use of this technology is limited to your role
as a student at the College, and there are certain security procedures
that you are expected to observe. Copies of the “Information
Technology Student/Patron Ethics Agreement” have been posted
in computer laboratories, libraries, and other areas where access
to college computer services is available. You may obtain a copy
of this agreement and the Computer Ethics Guideline from the
dean of Student Development Office.
