MMLC Policies and Procedures

The Multimedia Language Center (MLC) is an entity of the Department of World Languages and Literatures in the College of Arts & Letters. As such, only students who are registered for world language classes (regular courses, service courses, internships, and documented volunteer work) can have use of the facility and all its services.

  1. The MMLC is to be used for language study activities/tutoring.
  2. Students must not eat or drink in the MMLC. Please enjoy them elsewhere.
  3. Students must log in and out of the MMLC using the front counter computer.
  4. A current CSUSB ID card issued to the student is required to check out materials.
  5. Students must have a myCoyote account to access lab computers.
  6. Students may be asked to move to a new seat or leave (at the instructor’s or coordinator's will) if present at the beginning of an Instructed Lab, Exam, or Reservation.
  7. Students are asked to treat all equipment with care and to leave the area in order.
  8. Students are NOT to alter any of the settings on any computer without prior permission from the MMLC staff.
