COMPUTER LAB RULES
DACC provides several computer labs throughout campus for our students to use. A schedule for the open labs can be found on the DACC website at https://dacc.edu/schedules/complabs. With the service/facilities, students are asked to obey the following rules to ensure an environment that is conducive to student success:
DACC reserves the right to suspend or terminate computer lab access to any campus user if the violation is deemed severe or the use is impacting the educational experience of other users.
In order for students to make smart financial and academic decisions, DACC provides updated Consumer Information for current and potential students every year. A link to the current Consumer/Student Information on the DACC website is https://www.dacc.edu/about/consumer-student-information. Paper copies of the information can be obtained through the Vice President of Student Services Office in Lincoln Hall, Room 108 or by calling 217-443-8746.
