Policy Statement Regarding Anti-Virus Software
Because of the inherent dangers associated with the introduction of viruses into computer systems, Post University requires that all students who are authorized to attach their personal computers to the network have virus protection software. This means that students must have current anti-virus software installed and running on their computers and that new virus definition files are downloaded on a daily basis. Expired software or out-of-date definition files is equal to having no anti-virus protection.
It is each student’s responsibility to purchase, install and update his or her own anti-virus software. Post University reserves the right to regularly check students’ machines via manual or automated processes for compliance with this requirement and block access to the network until anti-virus software with up-to-date definitions has been verified. Post University reserves the right to block access to the network if it is believed that a student’s computer is infected, the student is running software that has the potential to disable the network, the student is exhibiting malicious behavior such that the campus network is compromised, or if the student is performing actions that are illegal under federal, local, or state law. Post University also reserves the right to take a single or series of computers off-line to ensure the protection of the system.
