Professional Photos & Grad Gifts | May Graduation
All graduation participants will be invited to take part in optional photo opportunities marking their graduation.
These events are by invitation only and require advance registration.
Students will be invited to participate at a specific time and place with classmates from their major or program. Events will be planned in Forest Grove, Hillsboro, Eugene and Woodburn, depending on program location.
These photo opportunities will be a chance for students to don their regalia, pick up their diploma covers and other gifts, and pose for a professional photo on stage. There will be no remarks or ceremonies during the photo opportunities, and no guests are allowed — though we will livestream as many as possible to allow families to see their students on stage, even without the typical ceremony.
COVID-19 precautions will be in place for the protection of students and employees. Physical distancing and mask requirements will be enforced. However, we will also have a selfie station for students to take their own additional photos with friends and faculty.
Professional photos taken at events prior to April 23 will be included in the May 15 virtual ceremony and will be provided, digitally, to students for free.
These photo opportunities are completely voluntary. Students may also register to receive a DIY Grad Kit, including their diploma cover and graduation gifts, by mail and may upload their own photos for the virtual ceremony.
* Some photo opportunities will take place in May, due to students being away from the area for clinical rotations. If you are part of a photo opportunity after April 23, you will still receive a digital copy of your professional photo. However, that professional photo will not be included in the virtual ceremony. Be sure to submit your own photo for the virtual ceremony!
