Services for Graduating Students
The university will contract the services of an external vendor, Grad ImagesCanada, to capture photographic images of this special day. Each graduate will be photographed on-stage as your degree is being conferred and back stage in a convocation portrait.
Approximately four weeks after the ceremony all graduates will receive a passport-sized proof of their photo(s) along with information on a variety of photo packages to select from. There is NO OBLIGATION to purchase.
