Information Technology Services: Policies & Guidelines

In order to retain necessary flexibility in the administration of policies, the State of Montana, MUS Board of Regents and the MSU-Northern reserve the right to interpret, revise or delete any of the provisions of these policies, with or without notice, as deemed appropriate at their discretion.

Policies apply to all MUS employees using MUS-owned or managed computing and information resources where access to those resources is part of their employment. They also apply to visiting faculty, adjuncts, and persons having officially sanctioned, unpaid affiliations with an MUS campus, students and any other person that has authorized access to MUS-owned or managed computing and information resources. This includes personally owned equipment. Where no local policy exists, Board of Regent and/or MSU-Bozeman IT policies apply.

Password Note
Don't use the same password here that you use anywhere on the Internet! Do not use the same password for MSU-Northern accounts as for other non-Northern access (e.g., personal ISP account, non-Northern web email accounts, option trading, benefits, etc.). Where possible, don't even use the same password for various MSU-Northern access needs. For example, select one password for email/domain access and a separate password for Banner.
