Ceremony Photographs: Grad Images is our professional photography partner. They will take four photos of your student at the ceremony – posed in two places before going on stage, with the dean on stage, and with the president upon leaving the stage. Guests will not be allowed onto the ceremony floor to take photographs. Grad Images will send an email link to digital proofs within a few days of the ceremony.
