About Your CLAC account

All registered students will receive an account on CLAC, which is an Ubuntu Linux server instance running on Google Cloud Platform. All homework assignments in this class will be submitted and graded on CLAC.

What (and what not) to use your CLAC account for

Your account is for you and only you.

Your account is only for AP-related coursework.

Be mindful of the resources you use.

Violations of the rules above will result in your account being disabled. This will prevent you from submitting your homework, which will result in you receiving a zero on all labs due while your account is suspended.
