How much access to give student workers?

By a.portman ·
I have been informed that I will have student interns working for me soon. We are not an IT technical school, these are not future IT Professionals. How much administrative access should they be given?

Should they have network Admin privileges?

Work on faculty computers?

Have access to faculty passwords?

View other student's grades?

Request for Clarification

What tasks will the students be expected to perform? Difficult to know what access to suggest unless we know what they will be expected to actually do. One thing I would suggest is figure out the minimum to perform the tasks you know will be required, you can always add more later and it's harder to explain taking access away.

You will need to know what they need access to first.
If you are unable to find out, I would make them like regular non IT users. Then they can ask for permissions as they need them.

Minimal access required to do their job. All on a "need to know" basis.
