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 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. There are two options:
- Ask the student to fill out the online image release form. They will receive a confirmation email when it’s completed. Ask them to forward the confirmation email to you so that you have a record that they’ve completed the release form before you use their image.
