Peer to Peer File Sharing

The Higher Education Opportunity Act (HEOA) includes provisions which require any institution who accepts federal student financial aid to develop a plan and implement a strategy to reduce the illegal uploading and downloading of copyrighted works through peer-to-peer (P2P) file sharing.

The college complies with these provisions in the following manner:

The college has developed a written plan to document its compliance.

Use of college network resources to illegally obtain copyrighted works and materials through peer-to-peer file sharing or other methods is prohibited.

Violation of these regulations may include but are not limited to college disciplinary procedures and reporting of activities to proper authorities.  

The college encourages use of legal sources for online content maintained by Educause.
