Posting and Solicitation Policy

Bulletin boards are for use by college recognized departments and organizations.

All materials must be stamped and dated by the Student Engagement Center before appearing on bulletin boards.

Faculty course announcements must be approved by the faculty member’s academic dean prior to being approved by the Student Engagement Center.

Unstamped advertisements will be removed.

Advertising may appear on assigned bulletin boards only. Windows, doors, walls and glass are not for advertising purposes. Advertising appearing in unassigned areas will be removed.

Certain bulletin boards and display cases are assigned and identified for the exclusive use of academic departments for college business and are not subject to this approval process.

Non-profit organizations may post their events on designated bulletin boards. These organizations may be asked to produce a copy of their tax-exempt letter from the IRS to verify their non-profit status.

Posted advertisements should be no larger than 11″ x 17″. Contact the Director of Student Engagement if you have any questions.

Advertising on campus is subject to Northern Essex Community College policies and procedures.

Contact Information

As a reminder, make sure that you include contact information on your flyer prior to submitting it for approval. Please allow two business days for processing. When possible, bring in an original document for approval, before making copies.


No individual or company may solicit or sell on campus for personal gain.  Use of campus property to solicit donations, make sales or recruit is restricted to the College, College recognized organizations, departments, and college sponsored programs and activities. Prior approval must be obtained from the President or the Vice President/Dean under whose jurisdiction the organization or the department operates or his or her designated representative.  For example, a faculty member working through a department would seek approval through the Vice President of Academic Affairs or designee and a student working through a student club would seek approval from the Vice President of Enrollment Management and Student Services or designee.  When such approval is granted, funds must be handled through the appropriate procedures as established by the Comptroller of the college.  This rule is intended to promote an educational rather than commercial atmosphere, to promote safety and security, to prevent commercial exploitation of students, and to promote campus tranquility.

Credit card companies are specifically prohibited from soliciting or selling on campus.
