A professional photographer will be taking your picture as you go across the stage to receive your diploma or certificate. Here is how their program works:

Graduates will receive a name card at the check-in table to complete, which will be handed to the announcer when you walk on the stage.

Gradimages will also use the name card information to mail your color proof to you after the graduation, so be sure to fill in the address where you want your photos sent. Please fill in Address Box and Description Box. Please PRINT CLEARLY, so that your name and address can be read easily.

You will receive the color proof about one week after the ceremony. If you like the proof, you can then order photos.  There is no obligation to purchase, and you will have the option of ordering enlargement packages at very reasonable prices.
