For Students

Photos & Video

We want to keep you safe throughout DU Commencement, which is why we ask you and your guests not to photograph or videotape the ceremony from the aisles.


Two 2011 DU graduates pose for a camera phone picture.

As an alternative to taking photographs from the aisles, we're happy to offer you pictures of the moment you receive your diploma, via GradTrak photography. GradTrak will send photo proofs and order information to you via your DU email address within 10 days of Commencement.

Because DU collects caps and gowns from each graduate immediately after the ceremony, please plan to take any pictures with family and friends in your cap and gown before Commencement.


Live streaming video of the ceremony will be available on the Commencement website. We will also have a professional videographer recording the ceremony. To purchase a DVD of a past Commencement ceremony, complete our online order form (PDF).

Watch video of our previous Commencement ceremonies on DU's YouTube Commencement channel.
