Student Computing Access Program (SCAP). Tips for A Successful Implementation. Overview. Your campus SCAP allocation will not be available for spending until the hardcopy letter of compliance is received and Final Report is received and approved.
Tips for A Successful Implementation
In the Final Report, be careful to explain how SCAP contributed, in total or in part, to student hands-on use of computing.
In the Final Report
Upgrading communication lines from a T1 to a T3.
This is a shared resource. Only the “student” portion may be funded with SCAP.
To avoid confusion, clearly state that only the student portion was funded by SCAP.
Computer furniture for a student computer lab.
Only 10% of the SCAP allocation may be used for furniture.
General use computers and a laser printer in the library for student use.
This is allowed. The computers are general use and not dedicated to accessing library servers or library data bases.
To avoid confusion, describe the equipment as “general use” systems.
Software licenses that have some faculty research or administrative uses.
These are shared resources. Only the student portion may be funded with SCAP. As with other shared resources, clearly describe that only the student portion is funded by SCAP.
Adding a computer and projector in a classroom for teaching students.
It is allowed in computer classroom labs.
It is not allowed in traditional classrooms, conference rooms and lecture halls.
To avoid confusion, clearly state the type of room the equipment is housed in.
Add a computer to a research lab that is also used by students.
It is unlikely that this would be an allowable expenditure. To avoid problems, non-SCAP funds for any computer relatedexpenditures that would be housed in a research lab.
Upgrade campus-wide email server.
This is a shared resource and SCAP funds may be used to pay for the student portion only.
Card access system for a lab to provide student access when staff supervision is unavailable. The lab is normally locked during unsupervised hours.
It would be allowed in this case since it improves student access to the computer lab.
Wall mounted alarm system
This is not allowed. It falls under the general campus improvements category.
