Professional photographers from Island Photography ( will photograph all graduating students as they receive their diplomas from President Yellen. If you wish to receive proofs online, please provide an e-mail address on the back of your line-up card, and you will be notified when they are available for viewing. Graduates will also receive two complimentary proofs and an order form by mail.

Due to the large number of people attending Commencement, it is necessary to restrict access to the platform and the graduates’ seating area. Guests will not be able to walk or stand in the aisles to take photographs or videotape. However, there will be designated areas for families to take pictures following the ceremony. The Commencement program, which you will receive on Commencement day, will show these locations.
