May 2017 Commencement Ceremony
We are pleased to announce Grad Images as the professional photographer at our graduation ceremonies. Two photographs will be taken of each graduate, a pose with the diploma in front of the flag and the second as he or she receives a diploma cover. After the ceremony is over, every graduate will receive color proofs.
To expedite receipt of the proofs, graduates should register before the ceremony with Grad Images by clicking on the Pre-event Email Registration. Graduates can enter their email and the email addresses of the loved ones who would like to view and order their photos. All orders are done through Graduation Images either online or at 800-424-3686.
Your guests may also take personal pictures at the designated photography station on the east side of the stage. As many people would like to use this space, we recommend that you text message your family as the row in front of you stands. Once you get close to the stage, your guest may approach the front photography line. Only individuals with a camera are allowed in the area. If you hire a professional photographer, they will be afforded the same courtesy as anyone else. Students will walk in the following order: Certificates, Associates, Baccalaureates, Masters and Doctorates. Space is limited, so once your pictures have been taken, we ask your guests to return to the stands. Ushers will guide photo takers through the marked off areas.
