Professional photographers will be taking two photos of each candidate: a more formal, “posed” photo taken prior to being recognized onstage and a “candid” photo taken while shaking hands with a University official.
When you purchase your cap and gown you will be asked to complete a name card. This name card is used by the photographers to identify the photos taken of you at commencement. To receive complimentary proofs, please be sure to complete the address information on the back of the name card. University Book Store personnel will complete this information for mail-in orders. Students should check for accuracy. Complimentary proofs will be mailed to the graduates within one week of the ceremony.
