Commencement Photos

Ordering Information

Photographic services for the Fall 2015 Commencement will be provided by On the Edge Photography.

Photo Ordering Information - Pre-Event

  • All graduates will be photographed during Commencement, with multiple images available for online ordering approximately 5 days after Commencement. Photos will also be taken at the Reception held immediately after the Commencement. Please note all photos online will be actual ceremony photos!

  • All images will be available online, but your best pricing options are by pre-purchasing before the actual event. Pre-purchase here.

  • You may pre-purchase a print collection , or pre-purchase a credit called an "E-Certificate" to be used when your order is placed , much like a gift card. Both the print collections and the E-Certificates will be sold at a discount prior to the event date. You may also order after the event, but package prices will be higher and E-Certificates will not be available after the event.

  • Pre-purchase is done on-line. We will also be available the day of the event to take your orders as well. On-line pre-purchasing is your easiest and quickest method of pre-order.

Event Day - Commencement

We recommend the following for the best images:

  • Make sure you hair is pulled back away from your face, and your tassel will not swing into your face
  • Masters - Wear tassel on left, Bachelors - Wear tassel on right
  • Take your time crossing the stage - you worked hard for this!
  • Masters - when receiving your hood, please look straight ahead. If your cap is knocked off, simply hold it in your hands - do not try to put it back on.

All Graduates- When accepting Diplomas:

  • Receive your diploma
  • Shake hands, smile and look at the presenter
  • Look into the audience and smile

Graduate Candidates- Hooding

  • Look straight ahead, chin up slightly and smile
  • Let the Dean place the hood over your head
  • Turn and shake Dean's hand

To provide maximum flexibility, we offer several ways to purchase:

  1. Pre-purchase. This offers you the best possible pricing options while allowing you to choose the images that make up your package.
    • You may choose to pre-purchase one of the packages below at a discount. All pre-purchase packages include free standard shipping, and several have more than one pose.
    • Pre-purchase an E-Certificate to create your own package. An E-Certificate is like a gift card, the credit you purchase may be used on any item offered on our website. An E-Certificate will also redeem for 20% more than purchase price. e.g. purchase a $60 E-Certificate, it will redeem for $72 when you place your order online. E-Certificates must be pre-purchased.
  2. Purchase online after the event. All graduates will be photographed, and imaged placed online for purchase.
