Student Guidance for Participating in Social Media

All students of Bevill State Community College should understand that all postings through the College’s social media are public and are expected to follow acceptable behavior and comply with Alabama law, Alabama Community College System policies, and policies outlined in the Bevill State Community College Student Handbook located in the College’s Catalog.

Officially recognized student organizations are encouraged to develop a social media presence. Since these organizations are affiliated with the College, these social media activities should comply with all College policies found in the Catalog. College organizations seeking to have a social media presence should make a written request to the Dean of Students. The Dean of Students will approve requests. Maintenance and content development of the approved social media sites will be the responsibility of the student organizations.

Abusive content posted to Bevill State’s social media outlets, or violations of the College’s Social Media Policy should be reported immediately. Any student who believes that he or she has been treated unfairly or unjustly with regards to social media, should report it as outlined in the College’s Student Grievance Policy.
