As a college we include and celebrate a wide range of diversities. We are an access college and we need to do all that we can to make the college experience a positive and productive one for all students, faculty and staff. Please respect your faculty, classmates and the classroom process. You have a right to an environment conducive to learning which excludes verbal, personal, emotional, physical, and e-harassment (msn, email, text chat, social networking etc.) and bullying in all its forms. Using electronic devices in the classroom should be discussed with your faculty to ensure using them is acceptable. All e-communication with your faculty or classmates should remain professional.

This belief is fundamental to the partnership that is Negahneewin College and Confederation College. The staff at Negahneewin College of Academic and Community Development can assist students as they enter college, make their transition to full time post secondary education and, ultimately, experience successful completion of certificate, diploma and degree studies. They ensure that students are familiar with the structure and processes inside the college and that students are able to obtain the supports and services they need at various stages of their academic life.

Negahneewin College of Academic and Community Development is a college within and throughout Confederation College. Negahneewin Council, comprised of Aboriginal community and college representatives, is engaged in a partnership with Confederation College to provide direction and leadership to Negahneewin College.

NEGAHNEEWIN
This is compounded by academic challenges such as under preparedness, variances in high school accreditation and the familiarity with the structural and highly formalized demands of education. Further, the experience of social isolation and cultural alienation prevents these students from becoming comfortable in new surroundings and discourages them from real engagement in learning. Negahneewin College of Academic and Community Development provides students with an identifiable space which is culturally responsive and familiar. This setting is recognizable and accessible in that it is where Aboriginal specific resources and academic programming are available.

Negahneewin’s support is particularly important for Aboriginal students who face challenges at college due to issues such as a lack of familiarity with large, urban education institutions, their transition to a new city and separation from home and community.

PUBLIC SAFETY
Campus Security Partners Our staff of professionally trained Security Guards are available 24 hours per day to provide you with assistance when you need it. In an emergency, Security will respond to your location. Working with both Blackberries and radios, they can make the important follow-up contacts quickly and efficiently. Whether the assistance is internal or external (i.e. Fire, Police or Ambulance), Security can make the calls and provide directions to the emergency. Campus Security Partners are also responsible for building and room access. Campus Walk Campus Walk is a group of students, who are also employed by SUCCI, through the Ontario Work Study Program from early September to late April, Monday to Friday evenings. Team members are available to escort individuals who wish to be accompanied to their vehicles, or between buildings. To request service, contact Campus Security Partners, or visit the Team at The Hub. When Campus Walk is off duty, escorts to vehicles are provided through Security.

emergency procedures
Evacuation Alarms Bells When a fire occurs or smoke is detected, you will hear fire alarms ringing. When the fire alarms sounds, you must leave the building immediately by the most direct route to the outdoors. Use the stairs: do not use elevators. Walk; don’t run. Evacuation Is Not Always the Best Response. In some emergency situations, evacuation may not be a safe response alternative. Hot Tip When thinking about what you need to do if a Lockdown is announced, remember the following:
Shelter in Place The Shelter in Place strategy will be implemented in the case of an external environmental threat in the vicinity of the college, such as a chemical spill or gas leak in neighbourhood, or extreme weather. • return indoors / don’t go outdoors; close windows & window coverings • turn off cell phones & electronic devices; do not call Switchboard, Security, etc. for info • continue regular indoor routines; remain in place until advised by public announcement that Shelter in Place has been lifted Hold and Secure The Hold and Secure procedure is initiated when the threat is near, but not inside the building, such as when there is an offender in the neighbourhood. • return indoors / don’t go outdoors; close & lock exterior doors; close windows & window coverings • turn off cell phones & electronic devices; do not call Switchboard, Security, etc. for info • continue regular indoor routines; remain in place until advised by public announcement that Hold and Secure has been lifted Lockdown The Lockdown procedure is initiated when danger is present on the college site (e.g. active shooter in building), and safety of students, staff and public is threatened. • enter the nearest room; close doors, locking or barricading when possible; close windows & window coverings; move away from doors and windows • turn off cell phones & electronic devices; maintain silence; do not call Switchboard, Security, etc. for info; call 911 or contact Security only if you have helpful information (e.g. location of suspect) • lie on floor if gunshots are heard; prepare to evacuate the building or to relocate to another space if your security is compromised; remain in place until advised by the Police.

Academic Issues
What if I receive a grade I don’t understand or agree with? A flowchart outlining the process for resolving academic disputes is on page 88. Generally, a student first asks the instructor or the other decision-maker for clarification. He or she may refer to the course syllabus, to course or program outlines, or to another College policy for more information. For more information, see Academic Dispute Resolution Policy, 5-1-02 Academic Integrity Policy, 5-5-01 http://www.confederationc.on.ca/academicpolicies What if I am offended by a classroom discussion or assignment? What if I feel unsafe in a learning activity? As soon as possible, the student should talk with the instructor to express concerns. If the issue is with the behaviour of other students, the student may wish to speak with them, before, after, or instead of speaking with the instructor. If the student isn’t satisfied with the situation after meeting with the instructor, the student may choose to seek help from a counsellor in the Student Success Centre, from the Ombuds Office, or from the Program Coordinator. For more information, see Academic Dispute Resolution Policy, 5-1-02 Complaints Process (Non-Academic), 5-5-04 Student Code of Conduct, 5-5-01 Charter of Students’ Rights and Responsibilities, 5-5-03 http://www.confederationc.on.ca/academicpolicies

Website www.confederationc.on.ca I 83

What if someone asks me to do his or her assignment? What if someone asks me for help cheating on a test? The students, faculty, staff, and administration of the College see academic integrity as central to the mission of the College. Helping someone else violate academic integrity—by providing answers to a test, by allowing someone else to represent your work as his or her own, or in some other way—is also a violation of academic dishonesty. If someone asks a student to violate academic integrity, the student should speak with the instructor or program coordinator. For more information about academic integrity, consult the Academic Integrity College Practice listed below, ask the instructor for guidance, or ask for guidance from a staff person in the Paterson Library Commons. For more information, see Academic Integrity Policy, 5-5-01 http://www.confederationc.on.ca/academicpolicies How do I know if I’m plagiarizing or otherwise violating academic integrity? Violations of academic integrity include—but are not limited to— plagiarism (representing someone else’s words or ideas as your own), cheating, fabricating information, and helping someone else violate academic integrity. These violations are defined in the Academic Integrity Policy. Note that the instructor may have created specific instructions for an assignment, especially group assignments. For more information about academic integrity or instructions specific to a particular assignment, the student should ask the instructor.

What if I’m working on a group project and a teammate plagiarizes or cheats? Violating academic integrity can result in a failing grade for all team members. For further clarification or guidance in a specific situation, the student should ask the instructor. For general information about academic integrity, students may also ask a staff person in the Paterson Library Commons for guidance. For more information, see Academic Integrity Policy, 5-5-01 http://www.confederationc.on.ca/academicpolicies How do I get help and accommodations for learning difficulties, a learning disability, or some other disability? The student should check with the Learning Centre as soon as possible—preferably, before program registration—for guidance and requirements. To receive accommodation for a disability, the student must provide the Learning Centre with recent medical, education, or psychoeducational verification of the disability. This documentation must be signed by a qualified medical practitioner or registered psychologist. For more information about the certification, contact the Learning Centre staff. Note that not all people who have difficulty learning have certified disabilities. Other resources are available for students whose difficulty learning comes from other issues, such as gaps in background education, test anxiety or fear of public speaking, or poor time management skills. The Learning Centre can refer students to resources to help these types of difficulties.

General Behaviour Issues
What if I feel unsafe in a class discussion? As soon as possible, the student should talk with the instructor to express any concerns. If the student’s issue is with the behaviour of other students, the student may wish to speak with them, before, after, or instead of speaking with the faculty member. If the student isn’t satisfied with the situation after meeting with the instructor, the student may choose to seek help from a counsellor in the Student Success Centre, from the Ombuds Office, or from the Program Coordinator. For more information, see Academic Dispute Resolution Policy, 5-1-02 Complaints Process (Non-Academic), 5-5-04 Student Code of Conduct, 5-1-01 Charter of Students’ Rights and Responsibilities, 5-5-03 http://www.confederationc.on.ca/academicpolicies What if someone threatens me—in person, by email, by text, by phone? A student may choose to speak with the person whose behaviour is threatening. If the student doesn’t feel safe talking with that person, the student may ask for help from the Student Success Centre counselling staff or the Ombuds Office. Note that threats in virtual environments (email, phone, text, online) are as serious as “in-person” threats. Penalties for those found to threaten others may include loss of IT privileges as well as suspension, dismissal, expulsion, or other behaviour-related penalties. For more information, see Student Code of Conduct, 5-1-01 Charter of Students’ Rights and Responsibilities, 5-5-03 Complaints Process (Non-Academic), 5-5-04 Use of Information Technology, 5-5-05 http://www.confederationc.on.ca/academicpolicies

What if a picture of me appears without my consent? Student information, including pictures and other images, is protected and may not be released without the student’s consent. The Computer Services Department may also penalize the party responsible for unauthorized use of the College’s computing services. If a student’s image is used in a threatening or demeaning way, the student may choose to speak directly to the responsible party or ask for help from the Ombuds Office or the Student Success Centre staff. For more information, see Student Information Release, 5-2-02 Student Code of Conduct, 5-1-01 Charter of Students’ Rights and Responsibilities, 5-5-03 Complaints Process (Non-Academic), 5-5-04 Use of Information Technology, 5-5-05 http://www.confederationc.on.ca/academicpolicies What if someone accuses me of bullying when I was only joking? How do I know what behaviour is acceptable and what is not? The Charter of Students’ Rights and Responsibilities defines in principle the standards of behaviour, both academic and non-academic, required of students while on college premises or attending college activity at any location. The Student Code of Conduct identifies those behaviours which, if left unchallenged and unchecked, would disrupt the academic purposes of the College, make the campus less safe, diminish the dignity of individuals and groups, or erode essential freedoms. It applies specifically to students because the behaviours of nonstudent members of the College community are held to comparable standards of account by other statutes, policies, and contracts.

Administrative Practices
What is registration? Each semester students select the courses they wish to take. All fulltime students register over the web every semester. Information is sent to students by the Registration Services Department advising when registration will open. In order to register in a course, a student must have successfully taken any pre- or co-requisite (required course). Outstanding fees are due at the time of registration. Any changes or errors in a student registration record should be reported by the student to Registration Services. Can the time or day a class is scheduled change? From time to time, in response to unforeseen or unexpected circumstances student program/course timetables may be changed. In this event, the college will attempt to reschedule classes during the regular 8:30 am to 6:30 pm schedule; however, it may be necessary to schedule evening or weekend classes. The college understands the inconvenience changes of this nature causes. Students are advised to contact their Program Coordinator or Dean/ Manager to discuss conflicts that may arise. Where do I find information on program and course costs? Information on tuition fees and mandatory program costs are sent to students prior to the opening of each registration period. A full listing of tuition fees is available on the college website at http://www. confederationc.on.ca/admissions/tuition/ As of September 2007, new and returning students with disabilities who require the accommodation of a reduced course load may be eligible to have tuition fees reduced once they have paid the equivalent to full time fees for the program. For more information, contact the Learning Centre. How are tuition tax receipts issued? Information regarding Tuition and Education Certificates (T2202A) for the 2010 taxation year will be available on the student website.

96 I Website www.confederationc.on.ca

How are grades calculated? Grades will be reported on a student’s academic transcript according to the following letter and equivalent grade-point average (GPA) system. Letter Level of Achievement or Explanation GPA Numeric Equivalency Grade A B C D F IN Outstanding Achievement 4.0 grade points Exceeds normal achievement levels 3.0 grade points Meets normal achievement levels 2.0 grade points Minimum acceptable level of achievement 1.0 grade points Failure to meet minimum level of achievement 0.0 grade points Course requirements for have not been met at this time Not in grade point average Course requirements met through assessment of previous learning outcomes Not in grade point average Course requirements met in job placement, fieldwork or practicum Not in grade point average Credit course learning outcomes not met Not in grade point average Audit – the student has registered but not taken the course for credit Not in grade point average General interest course outcomes met Not in grade point average General interest course outcomes not met Not in grade point average

** *

Note: Not all general interest courses are gradable. An IN (incomplete) grade is to be assigned, at the discretion of the faculty, only in cases where a student has been unable to complete the course requirements in the normal semester time. Previous satisfactory achievement must indicate the student can complete the requirements by the extension date, as determined by the faculty and to be given to the student in writing. A student receiving an IN grade in any semester must, on the student’s own initiative, update the IN to a passing mark within the prescribed time period and to the satisfaction of the faculty. The faculty will then forward a Change of Grade form (see below) to Registration Services. Failure to comply will result in an automatic change of the IN to an F grade.

Maximum time allowance to convert an IN to a pass grading: Fall term Winter term Summer term March 15 November 15 November 15

“F” grades, once assigned, cannot be removed from a student’s academic history. Numeric Grades In most cases, letter grade assignments are based on the following numeric grade ranges. This is the college minimum standard. Certain programs and courses may have a higher passing mark. Refer to program documentation and/or course outlines for specific program/ course evaluation information. Letter Grade A B C D F Percentage Attained 80-100 70-79.9 60-69.9 50-59.9 Less than 50

In most cases, transcripts will include both alpha and numeric grades. Grade point average calculations are based on the weight of the alpha character (see above).

Grade Point Average

Definition Cumulative Grade Point Average: All courses are used in the calculation of the grade point average. Term Grade Point Average: All semester courses are used in the calculation of the grade point average. Program Grade Point Average: All program related courses (approved curriculum) are used in the calculation of the grade point average. Repeated courses* In cases where a student registers more than once in the same course, all final grades will be reported on the transcript. The highest grade will be used in the calculation of the grade point average. Grade Point Average Calculation Credit = Quality Points = Grade Point Average (GPA)= Credited course hours per semester (as noted on course outline) Course hours (X) numeric equivalent of letter grade Quality points/total credit hours

Website www.confederationc.on.ca I 101

Grade Changes Faculty who wish to change a grade submission can do so by completing a grade change form and submitting the form to their Dean/Associate Dean/Regional Director for approval. Once approved, the form is sent to the Registrar’s Office for processing. The maximum time allowance for grade changes is: Fall Term Winter Term Summer Term March 15th November 15th November 15th

“F” grades, once assigned, cannot be removed from a student’s academic history. If the faculty who assigned the original grade is no longer available, a grade change request can be initiated by the program coordinator. Note: Grade changes can affect eligibility for academic awards (first class standing/graduate awards). Faculty are encouraged to discuss the timing of grade changes with Registration Services. Can I get credit for courses taken at other schools? Transfer credits are awarded on a course-by-course basis to individuals applying to, or enrolled in Confederation College programs and who have academic credits earned outside of Confederation College. A full description of the process and policy can be found at www.confederationc.on.ca/transfercredits/ Can I get credit for experience? Prior Learning Assessment and Recognition (PLAR) is an evaluation of prior leaning acquired through life and work experience. Detailed information on the College policy and procedure for PLAR can be found at www.confederationc.on.ca/plar

102 I Website www.confederationc.on.ca

Where do I find information on graduation? Dates for convocation ceremonies are published in the Academic Calendar of Events. In the semester preceding the convocation ceremony a link will be activated on the College website with information for potential graduates. To be eligible for graduation, a student must successfully complete all program requirements with a GPA of at least 2.0. What if I want to ensure I am on track to graduate? Any student wishing to review their academic status to ensure they are completing all of the required courses can arrange to meet with a Registration Officer. Appointments can be scheduled in Registration Services. What if I want to complete more than one diploma? Students who have previously obtained a certificate or diploma from Confederation College may obtain a second certificate or diploma in another area of specialization. To obtain a second certificate or diploma, students must complete all the required courses for the second certificate or diploma either through transfer credits, PLAR or course study. Earning a second credential requires students to complete by additional study the minimum equivalent of 25% of the total program hours.

Website www.confederationc.on.ca I 103

Will I have to pay for any additional courses I want to take? Students considering taking courses above their normal program semester load are encouraged to discuss the implications of this decision with their program coordinator and seek advice and support. Additional fees may be assessed for overload courses depending on the number and length of the additional courses. Admissions and Registration staff can advise of any additional charges. What if I want to change my program or courses? If a student wishes to change programs, options or general education courses, they must consult with the program coordinator and complete, sign and submit the appropriate documentation to the required college departments. If this procedure is not followed, students may not receive a course credit. A student may change programs, option or general education courses within 10 days of the start of classes. What kind of tests will I take in my courses? The final grade in a given course will be based on ongoing testing and assessment. There will be a mid-semester assessment and the program coordinator will inform students whose progress is unsatisfactory. There is no specific time set aside for formal college-wide examinations; all tests and examinations are coordinated by the department concerned. Within the first 2 weeks of the semester, students will be informed in writing of the assessment process used by the faculty responsible. What is a general education course? The college recognizes the need to provide in its program curricula courses to broaden the students’ appreciation and understanding of themselves and the world. It is with this in mind that our postsecondary programs provide general education courses. General education experience deals with the learning outcomes and corresponding knowledge, skills and attitudes that will enable students to exceed minimum expectations in their fields of study by providing context, perspective and meaningfulness to their efforts. General education emphasizes the expansion of students’ knowledge, skills and attitudes beyond their vocational and an essential employability skills education.

104 I Website www.confederationc.on.ca

The following five theme areas provide direction in the development and identification of courses that fulfill the general education requirements. A. B. C. D. F. Arts In Society Civic Life Social and Cultural Understanding Personal Understanding Science And Technology

Students can normally choose the required number of general education courses from pre-selected grouping. General education courses are graded and carry the same importance as other courses in the program and are used in the calculation of the grade point average. If I enlist in the armed forces, what happens to my educational plans? The College recognizes that students who are members of the Reserve Force obtain additional benefits that are of value to their development and learning. The college will ensure that its Academic Policies & Procedures provide a process to consider special dispensations for Student Reservists.

How do I withdraw from a course? If a student wishes to withdraw from a course the student should first consult with the faculty concerned before the deadline dates listed in the Academic Calendar of Events. The student is then referred to the coordinator of the program in which the student is enrolled. If, after reviewing alternatives with the coordinator, the student still feels that withdrawal from the course is the best course of action, the student will be provided with a drop form. The student is required to bring a copy of the completed and signed drop form to Registration Services for processing. Note: Withdrawal from courses can seriously affect the following • • • • • Student loan eligibility Future semester subject eligibility Full-time program status Fieldwork and co-op work term eligibility Sponsorship status

106 I Website www.confederationc.on.ca

How do I withdraw from a program? Unless the formal withdrawal procedure is followed, a student will not be considered as having officially withdrawn from the college. This in turn can affect the amount of eligible refund a student may be entitled to if their fees have been paid or, the amount of fees they are required to pay the college if fees are still owing. Failing to officially withdraw from the college will result in F grades assigned on all courses in which a student is registered. Refer to the Refund Schedule at http://www.confederationc.on.ca/ admissions/. If fees have not been paid, contact Registration Services to find out the amount owing to the college. Students are responsible for all outstanding tuition owed to the college. Procedures for withdrawing from a program Note: Verbal notification of withdrawal is not acceptable. Follow the appropriate procedure as outlined below. Will I get any money back when I leave the College? Partial tuition refunds are provided to full time students who officially withdraw from their programs within 10 days of the start of class. Refunds are not issued after that date. Any exceptional requests for special consideration must be submitted to the Registrar, in writing, along with appropriate support documentation for consideration. Partial refunds are provided to part time students who officially withdraw on or before the second scheduled class. Refunds are not issued after that date. Any exceptional requests for special consideration must be submitted to the Registrar, in writing, along with appropriate support documentation for consideration. The Refund Schedule outlines the refund that a student will be eligible for should they officially withdraw from the college during various times within the academic semesters. Students must take note of the dates by which withdrawal can happen without considerable financial or academic penalty. 1. If a student owes an outstanding debt to Confederation College, the College reserves the right to retain the amount of a student’s refund necessary to repay that debt. Students in receipt of financial assistance through the Ontario Student Assistance Program who withdraw from the college and become eligible for a refund are advised that the refund will be forwarded to the facility with which they negotiated the Ontario Student Loan or Canada Student Loan as a payment against their loan.

This account is used to allow students access to computer lab workstations, College e-mail, print balance, Blackboard, the student Banner system, and other network resources. You will need to know your College account before you can access any of these systems. Please see the directions in the section below on how to determine your student account USERNAME and PASSWORD combination. How to Log On with Your College Account 1. First, students will need to determine their USERNAME. Students can find out what their username is by using one of the following methods: a. Confederation College Registration Instructions package – each student should receive this package by mail and within the document it will list your account username. Confederation College student photo-ID card – each student will receive an individual ID card on which is listed your College e-mail address. The username can be found by looking at the first part of your e-mail address published on your student card. Example: Student with the name of David Smith: E-mail address: dsmith@confederationc.on.ca Username: dsmith

b.

Note: If you encounter difficulty determining your College account credentials, or if you are having difficulty logging on with your account on any of the above systems, please contact the Computer Services Help Desk on the 3rd floor of the Shuniah Building or phone 475-6488 for assistance. Managing Your College Student Account Password All Confederation College students can manage their student account password using the MyCampus portal application. The MyCampus portal is a web-based application that is accessible to all students using an Internet connected computer. In addition to containing College news, links to College academic software applications, and more, the MyCampus portal contains a College account Password Utility. Using this feature, students can change their College student account password, as well as setup security questions to be used in case a student forgets their password and needs to have it reset by the system. Accessing the MyCampus Portal and Password Reset Utility: 1. On an Internet connected computer, go to the College’s main web site by typing in the URL: http://www.confederationc.on.ca into your web browser. At the top of the College website main page, click the link ‘Log in to MyCampus’. At the MyCampus login page; please enter your College username and password (as determined in the section above) and then click the ‘Log In’ button.

2. 3.

112 I Website www.confederationc.on.ca

The first time you access the MyCampus portal application you will be automatically brought to the Password Utility page (see picture below). If you do not see this screen you can access it by following these steps: 1. 2. Mouse over the ‘my menu’ link at the top right-hand portion of the MyCampus portal page. On the pop-up menu, select ‘My Places’, then ‘Password Utilities’, and then finally click on the ‘Private Pages (1)’ link.

Using the MyCampus Password Utility There are two main sections to the Password Utility screen: Step 1 – Update Your Password Reset Questions, and Step 2 – Change Your Password. Step 1 – Update Your Password Reset Questions In this section you can setup security questions in case you ever forget your College account password. To activate this feature, enter in four security questions and their respective answers. The security questions/answers can be anything you wish, but students are advised to choose questions/answers that are easy for you to remember but difficult for someone else to guess. Note: all four questions and their respective answers must be entered in as well as saved in order to activate the password reset feature.

Website www.confederationc.on.ca I 113

Step 2 – Change your Password This section allows students to change their College account password at any time. To change your password, type in a new password twice in the boxes provided and then click the ‘Ok’ button to save your changes. When changing your College account password, please ensure your password meets the following criteria: • • • • Be a minimum of 8 characters in length Contain 3 of the following 4 types of characters: small letters, capital letters, numbers, or punctuation marks Cannot be a password that you’ve used for the past 3 password changes Cannot contain a combination characters resembling your name or account username

Note: passwords entered that do not meet all of the above security standards will be rejected by the system. Note: In addition to the above requirements, the College network will require all account holders to change their password a minimum of once every 240 days. Users may, if desired, change their password a maximum of once every 30 days. Important! The procedure above will change a student’s password for their general network logon account which includes access to the College e-mail, Blackboard, and Student Banner systems. Account passwords for some other applications (like TLM) are separate from a student’s main College account and will remain unchanged.

114 I Website www.confederationc.on.ca

Resetting a Forgotten Password Once you have entered in your four security questions in the MyCampus Password Utility as described in the above section, if you ever forget your College account password, you can use the MyCampus password reset feature to change your password and regain access to your account. If you have forgotten your College account password, please follow the steps below to reset your password: 1. Go to the MyCampus login page as described in the section above: Accessing the MyCampus Portal and Password Reset Utility. In the ‘Forgot Your Password?’ section, type in your College username and click the ‘OK’ button. You will then be prompted to answer two random questions from your list of four security questions. Correctly answer the two questions and click the ‘OK’ button to proceed. If you incorrectly answer one or both of the security questions, you will be prompted to answer another two security questions. If you correctly answer both security questions you will be allowed to reset your password. Enter in your new password twice in the boxes provided. Be sure to follow the password security guidelines listed in the above section for changing your password.

Website www.confederationc.on.ca I 117

Computer Labs Notes 1. If a class is in progress in one of the labs and there are available computers, the instructor may, at their discretion, allow students to work quietly in the lab, provided that the student is there at the start of the class and not part way through. In both the Shuniah and McIntyre buildings, if a lab is not being used by a class, the Help Desk attendant, if requested, will open as many labs as are required, provided that the labs can be adequately supervised. Computer workstations may be booked for two one-hour nonconsecutive sessions per day in all “open-access” labs.

Wireless Network Facilities Wireless access points (running on the 802.11 A/B/G/N standards) to the college network/Internet have been installed throughout the college. This means that any college user with a wireless enabled device (laptop, smart devices, etc.) can be configured to connect to the college network. Instructions for setting up wireless networking will vary depending on the type of device being used, operating systems, etc. However, the general ‘connect to’ information is provided below: Wireless Connectivity in Shuniah Building Network Name/SSID: confedwifi Network Key (WEP): DAFCA169AA Wireless Connectivity For All Other College Buildings or Campuses Network Name/SSID: snap?47 Network Key (WEP): DAFCA169AA More detailed instructions on how to properly configure your Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, or Mac device to connect to the College’s wireless network are available at the Computer Services Help Desk (Rm. 346). For further information or help on connecting your device to the college wireless network, please visit the Computer Services Help Desk or call 475-6488. Computer Log-off Procedure Students must properly log off and shut down the computer before leaving a workstation in order to ensure the next person who comes along does not gain access to the previous person’s resources and information. If a student fails to log off properly, someone else could resume the last person’s session, read their e-mail, and perform various other undesirable activities including using up the person’s printing allocation. To log off and shut down: 1. 2. 3. Click the ‘Windows’ or ‘Start’ button at the bottom left of the screen. Select ‘Shut Down’ or ‘Log off’. Wait until the computer completely shuts down or logs off to ensure it is safe to leave the computer.
Website www.confederationc.on.ca I 119

Saving Computer Work Each student network account is also given network drive space (called the student ‘J-drive’) to save and retrieve their work files from. The student J-drive is a space on the network server that is private for each account (only someone logging in with the particular account or authorized Computer Services staff can access it). Each student account has been allocated 100 MB of space on the J-drive to store their files on. Within the personal J-drive space, a student is free to save, retrieve, and delete files, as well as manage folders. Students are encouraged to use the J-drive to store their work files on as it is much more secure and reliable than using removable (USB) drives (which can be damaged and/or lost). A major advantage of using the student J-drive is that the network server is backed up on a regular basis making it possible to retrieve files that may have been accidentally deleted or damaged. Please contact the Help Desk for assistance with this service. It is also recommended that students DO NOT save to the local hard drive (C-drive) of a computer as there is protective software installed on all student lab computer workstations in the college that will delete the files the next time the computer is rebooted. Please note that the student J-drive is regularly monitored to ensure that students do not exceed their 100MB disk space allocation or use the J-drive to store inappropriate material on (as per the College’s Information Technology Acceptable Use Policy). Please visit http:// www.confederationc.on.ca/sites/default/files/5-5-051.pdf for more information on this policy. To save a file to the J-drive: 1. 2. 3. 4. Select ‘File’ then ‘Save As’ from within the computer program being used. Navigate through the available drive letters to find the drive letter “J”. Click on the J-drive to select it (this is the student’s personal network space). Enter a file name and click on the ‘Save’ button.

120 I Website www.confederationc.on.ca

To retrieve a file from the J-drive: 1. 2. 3. 4. Select ‘File’ then ‘Open’ from within the computer program being used. Navigate through the available drive letters to find the drive letter “J”. Click on the J-Drive to select it (this is the student’s personal network space). Select the file you wish to retrieve and press the ‘Open’ button.

Note: A student’s network account and J-drive space, is kept for up to one year after a student leaves the College. This gives students plenty of time to back up any school materials they may want to keep to a personal storage device.

Printing and Scanning Services Confederation College has black & white laser printers available for student use. These printers are located in many computer lab areas within the Shuniah building (Help Desk & Library), McIntyre building, Dorion building, and ACE building. Colour laser printing is also available for general student use. Colour printers can be found at the Computer Services Help Desk (available from all 3rd floor lab computers), the 1st Floor Library lab, the 2nd Floor Library lab, and in all labs in the McIntyre building.

Website www.confederationc.on.ca I 121

Printing Allocation Each student is automatically given an allocation of $36 dollars per year for printing purposes. This ‘print balance’ is tied to your College account and will allow you to print to any student network printer in a computer lab area. The cost for printing is as follows: Black & White = Black & White (double-sided print) = Colour (single or double-sided print) = $0.05 cents per/page $0.04 cents/page $0.40 cents/page

Printing costs are automatically deducted from a students’ available print balance each time a print job is sent. Note: print balance money is non-refundable and non-transferable, but is renewed at the start of each new academic year for returning students. How to Print To print a job to a “pay-for-print” laser printer from any computer workstation: 1. 2. 3. Print as usual from any Windows program (i.e. select ‘File’ then ‘Print’). Select the printer from the list provided that you wish to print to. Press the ‘Print’ button.

Purchasing Additional Print Balance If a student exceeds the $36-per year printing allocation, they can purchase additional allocation at the Library Circulation Desk. Checking Print Account Balance To check how much money you have left on your print balance account: 1. 2. Ensure you are logged into the computer with your own College account. In the bottom right corner of the Windows desktop, click the black dollar sign symbol. A window will pop-up indicating your remaining print balance.

Colour Scanning Colour scanners are available for students to use on select stations in room 344 (behind Help Desk), the 1st Floor Library lab, the 2nd Floor Library lab, as well as in the McIntyre building in room 257. Security Software and Station Monitoring A security software package has been installed on all college lab computers and is configured to prevent changes to the operating system, additions of shortcut icons to the desktop, unauthorized software installations, etc. Any of the above changes will cause the Windows image to rebuild itself the next time the computer is rebooted. Warning: This process will delete any files that have been added to the C-drive! Computer Services staff will also, from time to time, use security software to remotely monitor random student computer lab workstations to ensure proper adherence to Confederation College’s Acceptable Use Policy.
