Commencement

Photography & Video

Photography

Due to safety concerns and obvious traffic flow problems, parents and guests will not be allowed to take photos in the aisles during the commencement ceremony. Because of this, we have contracted with a professional photographer, GradImages, to take pictures of our graduates before they enter the stage, as they receive their diplomas, and in front of a UWGB backdrop at the end of the stage. Graduates can receive a $5 discount on orders of $25 or more by pre-registering. Proofs will be sent via email and postal mail within 36-48 hours after the ceremony. Orders placed through the email/website are fulfilled within 72 hours. You can also view the photos online.

Graduates will also have an opportunity to have individual photos taken and place orders the day of the Graduation Resource Fair. Photographers will be available from 11:00 a.m.-1:00 p.m. and 3:00-5:30 p.m. on April 12, 2017 in the Phoenix Rooms of the University Union for the Spring/Summer ceremony. The Fall/Winter date is November 8, 2017.

There will be an area designated for family/friends to take their own photos in the graduate robing room (Dick Bennett Gym). However, please note that only graduates will be allowed in this room prior to the ceremony. Family members are welcome to take photos here AFTER the ceremony, or you may take photos in front of (NOT ON) the ceremony stage for up to 30 minutes AFTER the ceremony. Thank you for your cooperation!

Please be courteous when taking photos in the hallways as this area becomes very congested before and after the ceremony. Also, it's very important that the international and Native American tribal flags on display in the lobby are left in their places as some of them will be used in the ceremony and they are the property of UW-Green Bay. Again, we appreciate your cooperation.

Ceremony photos will be uploaded to the "Past" page of this website as soon as possible after the ceremony.

The commencement ceremony will be broadcast via live video streaming. It will also be electronically recorded. DVD's will be available for purchase by contacting the campus Academic Technology Services department at (920) 465-2416 or via email.
