The following lab policies have been established to serve the interest of our students and to provide an environment most conducive to their academic endeavors.

 

Gooch Computer Lab

With the exceptions detailed below, the Gooch Computer Lab is restricted to current students, faculty, and staff of Navarro College or persons who are currently enrolled in programs sponsored by the college (e.g., GED) or which have a presence at the college (e.g., programs in the Texas A&M/Navarro College partnership).

All persons using the lab must at all times wear a clearly displayed, currently valid Navarro College student ID or a currently valid student ID issued by one of the colleges which have a presence at Navarro College (e.g. Tarelton State, A&M Commerce).

Visitors who need to use the lab to complete FAFSA or college registration must first obtain a visitor’s ID bracelet. ID bracelets may be obtained from the office of the registrar on the first floor of the Gooch Student Center. Please note that such persons may be accompanied by no more than one adult to assist them. Visitors should understand that members of the library staff will not be able to assist them in completing FAFSA applications. They will assist applicants in finding the FAFSA web site, but they are not qualified to assist any further in the application process.

Veterans who need online access to apply for GI Bill benefits or FAFSA may also use the lab after having obtained a visitor ID bracelet from the registrar (or any other office responsible for issuing visitor IDs).

The lab serves the academic mission of the library and has been designated a Quiet Area devoted to study and academic pursuits. Anyone creating a disturbance in the lab will be asked to leave and will be subject to disciplinary action by the college authorities. Please note that cell phone use is not permitted in the lab. Persons who wish to use the lab are required to silence their cell phones before entering the lab.

Printing is limited to no more than twenty pages per day. If you need assistance with printing, please seek assistance from one of the staff.

Please do not leave personal items unattended. The library staff is not responsible for lost or stolen items. Please do not bring food or drinks into the lab.

No one will be admitted to the Gooch lab during the final 15 minutes the lab is open.

Thank you for your cooperation.
