A photographer with Photo Specialties will take photos of individual graduates during the commencement ceremony in the following location:

  • On stage receiving their diploma.
  • Off stage against a photo backdrop.

For safety and for the courtesy of others, guests should remain in their seats and should not approach the stage for photos.  Please do not bring personal drones to the Ceremony.

A free color proof will be sent to the graduate’s current mailing address, including a password for online viewing.  You are under no obligation to purchase prints.  To receive an email notification the moment your photos are online, please visit to pre-register.  If you do not receive a proof within a week of the ceremony, please contact or call 919-967-9576.



A videographer will record highlights from the Graduation Ceremony. A link to the footage will be sent out over the summer.
