Lab Purpose

The Open Computer Lab at the West Sacramento Center, SCC exists to support the academic goals, cultural pursuits and personal development of our students. It is our objective to maintain an atmosphere helpful to constructive learning, academic freedom and proper asset management.  Use of the computers is a privilege, not a right, and each user is responsible for utilizing the electronic resources in an effective, efficient, ethical and lawful manner. Unacceptable or disruptive behavior may result in loss of lab privileges or more.
