[PD] getting ripped off...

I was trying to set up an independent study at my school for this JI 
sequencer I've been creating. The head of the composition department, since 
no one here knows anything like this, spoke to someone at nearby WestChester 
who works with Max, and said he would get a list of things for me to do and 
give it to my comp teacher. I'm not keen on this, because I don't trust the 
guy to have any idea what my goal is.
But then someone told me today about some fine print clause somewhere that 
says University of the Arts owns anything someone creates while they're 
here. Luckily, since no one here understands either the tuning systems or 
the inner workings of a PD patch, them knowing what I had in mind doesn't 
help them if they don't actually have it.

So what I'm wondering is, is there such a thing as ownership with a PD 
patch? Can anyone direct me to info on this? I'd like to be prepared for 
anything this little trade school might try.
