Lab Policies

CoB Computer Lab Policies and Procedures:

Because the subject matter of MIS and AIS are so thoroughly involved in the use of computers, these concentration areas will normally have first priority on teaching use of the BBC computer labs.

Before the start of each semester, the MIS and AIS schedulers will work with their faculty to schedule the labs required. Faculty from other areas should make their computer lab semester-long teaching requests through their departments' schedulers at least 3 weeks before the beginning of a semester to coordinate with the MIS and AIS schedulers. The MIS and AIS schedulers will attempt to make reasonable accommodations to resolve conflicts. The teaching lab schedules will be passed along to the Business Computing Services (BCS) staff one week before the start of the semester and published online.

Ad-hoc requests for teaching lab use should be submitted at least one week before the required date to the BCS staff for scheduling. Semester-long use of the labs for teaching purposes will have priority over ad-hoc requests, which will be accommodated on a first-come-first-serve space available basis. Faculty scheduled to use the teaching labs are expected to make reasonable accommodations to resolve conflicts.
