Persons who are allowed access to UCM’s computing facilities must agree to be bound to the same
policies/procedures/regulations as those who are employed by the university. Information regarding these
policies/procedures/regulations is available at www.ucmo.edu/ot -> Topical Index -> Regulations and

forbidden. Also, use of UCM's computer and network facilities must comply with the MOREnet Acceptable Use
Policy. MOREnet's AUP, in addition to expressly forbidding commercial and illegal use, forbids use of the

other security problems. Software must not be installed on university equipment without a valid license.
I have read the above statements, and I agree to abide by them. I understand that the network ID and
password listed will be assigned to me, and I am responsible for any activity that takes place via this
