Photos by IU Photographers

Photographers who are employed by Indiana University take candid photographs at Commencement for use on IU websites and in official IU publications. These photographers are sensitive to the wishes of our guests and will refrain from taking photos of you at the event on your request.

Personal Photos & Videos

Graduates and their families and friends are welcome to take photographs and videos during the ceremony.

Professional Portrait Photography

The Office of University Events hires a photographer to take portrait shots of each graduate in cap and gown before the ceremony. Graduates do not need to sign up for these photographs in advance. Instead, they will be given a card to fill out when they are robing before the ceremony. The photographer will take their picture as they process into Assembly Hall. Proofs and order forms will be mailed to students' permanent address after graduation.

Students wishing to have formal pictures taken in cap and gown may do so at GradFair. Information about those portrait opportunities is provided to prospective graduates early in their last semester.

Live Broadcast

All Commencement ceremonies are broadcast live via streaming video at Recordings of the broadcasts are also available on that website.

Videos for Purchase

Videos of the complete ceremony are available for purchase from the WTIU Shop, a service of the IU public television station.
