Policies

Reservations are not accepted at the ACC. Usage is on a first-come, first-served basis.

Usage Policies

The ACC operates on the Florida Tech network and Internet connection. Users therefore are subject to the University's defined Acceptable Use Policy. Further, as this is a public lab, pornography is strictly prohibited. Logs of all computer activities are kept, and violators will be reported both to Florida Tech Security and the Melbourne Police Department. The computers are for academic use only. Repeated disregard for these rules will result in the client being asked to leave the ACC. If the user refuses to leave or continues to use the computing resources inappropriately, he/she may be escorted out by Security and possibly banned from the ACC and/or the campus.

Resources

Hardware

The ACC features 68 Dell Precision 3430 i7 computer systems with 16GB of RAM and plenty of hard disk space. All systems are installed with Windows 10 64Bit Professional.

Software

Word-processing, statistical analysis, programming, and presentation development programs are available on the systems. See the software list for more details and/or use the Contact Us form.

If an instructor wishes to use his/her own software, software license documentation must be provided by the instructor. Additional helpful information would include how many students will be using the software, and for what duration of time (one semester or more). Please note that the instructor must have appropriate licenses and user information available before the software can be installed on ACC computers. Please see the software policies for details on software installations.

The ACC cannot provide personal tutoring on how to use the instructor's software. Software instruction should be incorporated in the instructor's curriculum. At the beginning of class it is helpful to survey the students on their computer literacy for usage with common software programs.

Internet

Internet access is available on all ACC computers. Please become familiar with policies for appropriate usage of the Internet and appropriate search topics before using a workstation.
