When a student is issued a classified
correspondence course, he or she must be made aware
that he or she is responsible for safeguarding it at all
times and particularly for locking it in an appropriate
security safe whenever it is not in use. The student
completing the classified correspondence course must
follow locally established procedures to make sure
unauthorized persons do not gain access to it.
The student must not remove the classified
correspondence course from a designated office or
working area except in performance of his or her official
duties and under conditions providing the protection
required. Under no circumstances will the student
remove classified material from designated areas to
work on during off-duty hours, or for any other purpose
involving personal convenience.
