Access to Academic Technology Platforms

Policy describing student rights of access to academic technology platforms.

Owner: Information Technology


To control costs and minimize security risk, TC alumni and inactive students will not have access to TC’s academic technology platforms and data.



This policy applies to all students granted use of and/or access to Teachers College, Columbia University technology resources and data. This applies to instructional technology, such as the TC Learning Management System (LMS) and web conferencing tool, as well as research technology, such as survey and data analysis tools.


This policy does not apply to email and myTC portal access; for information about access to email, see the Network and Email Accounts policy. It also does not apply to non-UNI access to the LMS, which policy can be found here.



The College provides academic technology to enrolled students to support their learning (e.g., learning management system, web conferencing tool) and research (e.g., survey tool, data analysis software). Once a student graduates or does not register for 3 successive terms (12 months), the student loses access to academic technology and related data following the end of the term in which they graduated or for which they last registered.
