7.1 Temporary Access Restriction

An individual account's access to the College of Engineering network may be temporarily restricted due many reasons, including:

  • maintenance or servicing of network resources
  • investigation of College of Engineering network policy violation

Temporary access restrictions are intended to be short lived and usually require the account's owner to contact Engineering Network Services for reactivation. Note that investigations of network policy violations may require any number of potentially affected accounts to be temporarily restricted. The owner of the account may not be the object of the investigation if, for example, it may be suspected that the user's password has been cracked by a third party.

7.2 Permanent Access Restriction

Permanent access restrictions must be approved by the Dean of Engineering or the affected users' department head. All accounts assigned to a user may be restricted and future network privileges denied.
