Commencement Day Photographs

Photographers from Commencement Photos, Inc. (CPI) will take an official photograph of graduates shaking hands with Dr. Brower as they receive their diploma tubes or folders and as they exit the platform. Several weeks prior to commencement, CPI will send students a packet to the permanent home address on file with PLNU that includes an order form and ID number that will be required for viewing and ordering photos online. If you did not receive the form and ID number, please call CPI at (978) 851-5924 for assistance.

To avoid confusion and congestion during the awarding of degrees, we ask that guests please take personal photographs of graduates off-stage or using one of our temporary photo seats.
