UAlbany partners with Island Photography to professionally photograph our graduates at every ceremony throughout Commencement Weekend. The company will email and/or mail proofs to the students’ address(es) on file. Students and families then have the option to purchase photographs if they wish.
Students may choose for an optional formal portrait photo-session with Island Photography.
Every ceremony throughout Commencement Weekend will be live streamed. The following options exist for you to view and/or share these videos:
- Live stream - links will be posted just prior to Commencement Weekend.
- Video archives - University-wide ceremony recordings will be posted in the weeks following Commencement Weekend.
When you attend any Commencement ceremony, you enter an area where photography, audio, and video recording may occur. By entering the event premises, you consent to such media recording and its release, publication, exhibition or reproduction to be used for UAlbany promotional purposes.
