I was thinking that one way to ensure that students have anti-virus software
on their computers are....
Charge them for a license to whatever Anti-Virus software package you are
using...they I'm sure will offer educational discounts for those licenses
and it will be something that they have to do before being granted access to
the internet on your system. I remember paying all kinds of fees for stuff
while attending college...I'm sure it could be fitted in somewhere...

Subject: Antivirus software for student owned workstations
The University of Wyoming is considering offering antivirus software for
student owned workstations. I am interested in hearing from other
institutions who have considered antivirus software for students.
Responses to the following questions will be greatly appreciated. I
will send a summary of responses to the list. Thank you in advance for
University of Wyoming
1) Does your institution require antivirus software for student
owned workstations that connect to the institution's network?
2) Has your institution considered providing centralized support
for student antivirus software?
3) If question 2) is 'yes ...
a) Does your institution fund the costs of the antivirus
b) Does your institution provide support for the antivirus
software or is support provided by the antivirus software vendor?
c) Which operating systems are supported?
d) Are software updates distributed by your institution or
the antivirus vendor?
