Student Image Release Form

A signed release or other written permission must be obtained from every student who is identifiable in a photo intended for publication (online or offline). Oral permission is not sufficient. Any persons taking photographs for use in print or online material that feature students must first receive a signed photography waiver from said students.

Students listen to a presentation in the library.


Students under 18 require parental approval. You can fill out our image release form online. Photos or videos taken by Institutional Advancement for the purpose of a news item already have these releases.

Faculty/Staff are required to compile this information.

For students who are over 18, Faculty/Staff should:

  • Ask the student to fill out the image release form online. Students will receive a confirmation email when it’s completed. Ask them to copy you or forward the confirmation email to you so that you have a record that they’ve completed the release form before you use their image. 
  • Group and individual Photo and Interview Release Forms are available for print as well. Once students have signed either form, retain the form in Bellevue College’s records by scanning it and emailing a copy to
