Departmental Account Sponsor Handbook

Responsibilities of a Computer Account Sponsor

As a computer account sponsor, you decide which ITS computer services are paid for by your department or group, and who will receive these services. Any faculty or staff member at the university may become a computer account sponsor.

No commercial use of ITS computers is permitted. Misuse of the computers, including unauthorized access to protected files or intentional harmful use of computers and files, may result in revocation of the computer account as well as penalties set out in the State of Texas' computer crimes law.

Note: Computer services at the university may only be used for official university-related business. As the account sponsor, you are responsible for being sure that all your account users know and comply with the university's Acceptable Use Policy.
