Our AUP references standards that include the following
statements:

"Selecting and using client software that provides encrypted
  communications whenever it is an available and practical choice."
http://www.jmu.edu/computing/standards/infosec/general.shtml


"Administrators and implementers of campus servers that pass
  authentication information between themselves and their off-campus
  clients are to use software that encrypts the authentication
  transaction whenever it is available and practical. Systems that
  make use of the universal JMU Electronic ID (E-ID) and password
  are absolutely required to encrypt this information in transit."

http://www.jmu.edu/JMUpolicy/1207.shtml
"Since proper operation varies with changes in technology and platforms,
  specific requirements are not included in this policy. Instead, these
  requirements are listed in the JMU Computing Standards."
