Photo Release Form

The City College of New York celebrates the achievements of our students, faculty, and staff. In order to respect and protect the privacy interests of the College's students and employees on campus and at institutional activities, the College has implemented a photo release policy.

Throughout the year, the Office of Institutional Advancement, Communications & External Relations (OIACER) may take images/photographs and/or videos of students, faculty, and staff on campus or participating in school activities. These images/photographs and/or videos may appear in various CCNY publications, including, but not limited to, the CCNY website (, newsletters, programs, brochures, institutional calendar, social media, or mass media outlets. The OIACER Photo Release "Opt-Out" Form provides all persons NOT interested in having their image/photograph and/or video presence captured and used for marketing, communications, and PR purposes the opportunity to Opt Out.

By deciding to opt-out, you are choosing NOT to participate in the marketing, communications, and PR opportunities stated above. Each student, faculty, and/or staff person entering the institution as an employee or student is required to review this form and if interested in opting out, must submit the completed form to the OIACER. This policy is effective immediately.
