Ceremony Guidelines

Cooperation Requested

The audience may not enter the graduate-seating or stage area at any time during the program. All guests are asked to remain behind the roped areas. Since professional photographers will be available, family members and guests are asked to remain in their seats, relax and enjoy the ceremony.

Commencement Photographer


A photographer from Chappell Studios will be at the main campus university commencement ceremony to take a candid photograph of each graduate at their special moment of recognition. You will receive a free proof of this photo in the mail.  At commencement, prior to the ceremony, each student is given a card to fill out with all necessary information needed to be able to send students their proofs.  Each of these information cards is collected before the ceremony begins. For more information on photographs at the commencement ceremony, please contact Margaret Gonzales at 505.454.3495 or click on the above Grad Trak logo.
