2017-2018 Student Handbook

Page 18 of 107 Updated 1.25.17 If a student feels that someone is abusing HSU Internet services, they should contact the Help Desk Office at 325-670-1288. 9. Research Use of the internet for research may need prior approval. Students should receive approval from their professors in advance. Faculty should be aware of professional ethics and behavior related to research, especially if using human subjects. Studies using human subjects may need prior review by the Institutional Review Board. 10. Revocation of Access If a student’s access is suspended, he/she may appeal if they think their access has been unjustly terminated. The first line of appeal is to the Associate Vice President for Technology Services. If the Office of Student Life takes other disciplinary measures, appeal of those decisions must be made via the published process in the student handbook. In any event, no refunds will be offered or given for loss of access. Students should be sure to protect access and passwords.
