Photography Credentials
Credentials are issued to official photographers (who have been cleared by the Athletic Communications Office) and members of the working media. Parents and relatives of student-athletes, as well as non-official photographers are not allowed on the playing surface for photography purposes. 

Interview Policies
All requests for interviews must be made through Andy Walter, regardless of previous relationships with student-athletes. Requests must be made at least one (1) day in advance to allow the student-athlete or coach to be properly notified. If a telephone interview is necessary, arrangements can be made for the student-athlete to contact the media member. 

Post-Game Interviews
Interviews with Mount Holyoke student-athletes and head coaches will take place following the NCAA mandated 10-minute cooling-off period following each contest. All Mount Holyoke team locker rooms are closed to the media both for home and road contests. Andy Walter will assist in securing media members with post-game interviews. Interviews with opposing players must be arranged with the opposing team's sports information personnel or through Andy Walter or the team's head coach in their absence.
