and phones on "vibration mode". If you get a call, please take your call
outside the building.

front entrance to put your items.

Computer and Network Use policy of the Grossmont-Cuyamaca

- Keep noise to a minimum.
Other Important Information

your student network drive (H:) or an USB flash drive.

- Bring your own audio headphones. If you do not have any, you may check them
out from the library with a student ID card.
- On-site technical staff is here to assist you. Should you need more intensive
help, i.e. one-on-one tutoring, we will direct you to the appropriate resource.
- We also support Student Services by providing an additional site for printing
Student ID’s. After you are registered, bring a picture ID
and your student
ID number and we can print a student ID for you. It is not necessary
to get a picture ID every semester.
- If you have a previous semester’s student ID, bring it in and we will update
it with a current semester’s sticker. If you lose your ID, you are allowed
1 additional card, at no charge.
- We have a Red Canyon system for the
purpose of tracking your hours for those who are enrolled in CalWorks. It is
located behind the copier.
We hope your experience with us will be rewarding and provide you the support
you need to reach your educational goals.
