Student Social Media Policy



Middlesex Community College's social media provides a convenient place where current and prospective students, alumni and the community can easily connect and learn about topics related to Middlesex.

We want you to participate in MCC social media, while abiding by our MCC Social Media Code of Conduct:

  • Be respectful.
  • Be honest.
  • Respect copyright and fair use.
  • Unsolicited or unauthorized advertising (including advertising of non MCC services or products), promotional materials are not permitted.
  • Derogatory comments, including racially or sexually motivated, and sexually explicit materials are not permitted.

By submitting content to any Middlesex Community College social media sites, users understand and acknowledge that this information is available to the public, and that the college may choose to use this information for internal and external promotional purposes.

Please note that other participants may use posted information beyond the control of Middlesex Community College. Users who do not wish to have information they have made available via these sites used, published, copied and/or reprinted, should not post on the college's social media sites.

Middlesex Community College has the right to remove any content for any reason, including but not limited to, content that it deems threatening, profane, obscene, derogatory, a violation of intellectual property rights or privacy laws, off-topic, promotion of organizations, programs, services or products not related to the college, or otherwise misleading, damaging or illegal. Users are fully responsible for the content they load on any of Middlesex Community College's social media sites.

If content is deemed threatening, profane, obscene, derogatory, a violation of intellectual property rights or privacy laws, off-topic, promotion of organizations, programs, services or products not related to the college, or otherwise misleading, damaging or illegal – it will be removed from the thread. If an individual violates a policy more than once the college reserves the right to remove the poster from all official MCC Social Media sites.

If the posting is in violation of the Student Code of Conduct, the matter will be referred to the Dean of Students office.
