Photo Policy


All students are advised that the North Central Texas College Marketing & Community Relations Office takes photographs and shoots videos throughout the year of members of the student body and reserves the right to use them for publicity, promotional, and marketing purposes. This may include images and audio and video recordings of voices.

The College reserves the right to take photographs of campus facilities and scenes, events, faculty, staff, and students for promotional purposes in any areas on campus or at any NCTC-sponsored event off campus where subjects do not have a normal and reasonable expectation of privacy. All such photographs are the property of NCTC and may be used for NCTC promotional purposes such as electronic and printed publications, websites, classroom use, and college ads without prior permission of the subjects.

As a general practice, there is no attempt to collect individual photo release forms from students. Instead, we make the assumption that NCTC students are our best resources for marketing the College and that they will welcome involvement in these activities. However, students who do not wish to have their images or voices used for this purpose must stipulate this in writing to the office of the Vice Chancellor of Student Affairs at the beginning of the semester. It is also expected that such students will excuse themselves from photo or video sessions and inform the NCTC photographer that they do not wish to be included.
