Visiting photographers (FOOTBALL) are limited to the visiting team sidelines. End zone and home sideline photography is prohibited. Team videography will be placed on the roof top deck of the Griswold Pressbox. Filming (video) from the sideline is strictly prohibited. 

Visiting photographers (BASKETBALL) must stay outside the black baselines and are not allowed on the court until after the game. Team videography will be placed in the top bleacher section behind the benches. 

Due to limited space and to ensure compliance with NCAA guidelines, credentials will not be issued to "free-lance" writers or photographers without a specific assignment received by the assigning organization. 

College personnel may deny or revoke credentials without notice and an individual shall surrender his/her credential upon request for: noncompliance with the priorities or guidelines set out in this policy; noncompliance with health, safety, or security directives issued regarding College athletic events; violations of College, Department of Intercollegiate Athletics, NCAA, or NWC policies; and for conduct for which there are reasonable grounds to believe violate state or federal law, or constitute a breach of professional ethics.
