  • The ISO validates all infringement claims to correlate timestamp information with the user activity reported.
  • If a correlation is determined, the ISO initiates a TrackIT work order for the offender to respond within 48 hours in writing that the offending file has been removed from their system.
  • If no response is received within 72 hours, network access is suspended immediately and the claim details will be turned over to the student conduct system.

Second Offense:

  • If a second infringement claim is received for the same student within the academic year, network access is suspended immediately and the claim details are turned over to the student conduct system.

System Status
