Release of Student Information and Photographs

The public affairs office routinely prepares news releases identifying students who have been accepted to SUNY Poly, students named to the President’s and Deans’ lists, students who participate in regularly scheduled activities, and those who will graduate. In addition, feature stories are developed from time to time regarding special activities and noteworthy events.

Students not wishing to have their names appear in news releases may contact the public affairs office, ext. 7307.

Photographs of students, faculty and staff taken on campus may be used to illustrate official college publications and advertisements. Students who wish to restrict the release of directory information and/or photographs should follow procedures outlined in the Student Handbook or contact the public affairs office, ext. 7307.

“Directory information” is designated as the student’s name, parent’s name, address, telephone number, date and place of birth, major field of study, full- or part-time status, participation in officially recognized activities and sports, weight and height of members of athletic teams, dates of attendance, degrees and awards received, most recent previous school attended, e-mail address, and photograph.
