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.

Photos

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 the option to buy professional pictures of the moment you receive your diploma through GradImages, our official Commencement photographer.

Your proofs will be ready to view online as early as 48 hours after the ceremony. When your images are available, GradImages will email you and mail you paper proofs, along sending optional text message notifications. Your information is never shared and privacy is guaranteed. You can pre-register to make sure your contact information is up to date with GradImages, so they can provide your complimentary proofs as quickly as possible.

Pre-registration does not obligate you to purchase photos from GradImages. If you do buy photos, you will save $5 off any order of $25 or more for your participation. Pre-register for your proofs online.

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.

Video

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).
