A professional photographer is on hand to take photos of each graduate as he or she is congratulated on stage. Proofs and ordering information is sent to your home address within six weeks of graduation. You can also access the proofs on the GradImages website.
There are dedicated photo locations at the Commencement Celebration in the SDC Multipurpose Room after the ceremony.
Guests may take pictures during the ceremony. However we ask that you remain seated, so you do not disrupt the ceremony or block the view of others.
