Rights of Students to Intellectual Property

Students who utilize University support in producing intellectual property, other than a directed work, have the right to share in any proceeds derived from the intellectual property in accordance with the distribution procedure set forth in the University's policy on patents, copyrights, trademarks and other intellectual property. However, it is not the intent of the University to assert rights to works for which the intended purpose is to disseminate the results of academic research or scholarly study. Students who develop intellectual property utilizing entirely their own independent efforts, as defined by University policy, are not required to share with the University the intellectual property rights derived from their independent efforts.
