Policies and Rules

The following links will guide users through the established rules and policies for availing themselves of IT resources. Some of these are 'capital-P' policies adopted by the Oakton Board of Trustees. Others range from rules developed jointly by IT with other departments to outlines of processes that must be followed in order to best serve you.  If you have any questions or suggestions about any of these rules and policies, please contact IT.
