Grad Images will take a photo of each graduate: 1) an individual shot before you walk up the stage, 2) as you shake the President's hand while receiving your diploma cover and 3) in front of a Concordia banner as you exit the stage. You can expect to have proofs emailed to you within 24-48 hours of your ceremony and mailed to the permanent address on file with the University, so be sure your permanent address is updated on your CSP Connect. Orders can be placed online at Grad Images or by phone at (800) 261-2576 . To expedite the order process please register your e-mail address at the Grad Images URL.
Video of Ceremony
We are in the process of obtaining edited video from the vendor who recorded your Commencement Ceremony. Once obtained, we will make these files available as a You Tube video. Then you will have the opportunity to download the entire ceremony, music omitted for copyright purposes, the student or commencement addresses. This approach will save duplicating, administrative and mailing costs and allow you to download only the parts you desire to view.
You will receive an email that will contain various links within 3 weeks. Thank you for your patience and again, congratulations on your achievements.
Diploma frames are available for purchase year round in the Campus Bookstore. Interested graduates may also submit an order online or by picking up an order form at the Campus Bookstore or at the One-Stop Grad-Shop event (these forms must be turned in at the bookstore). A sample frame for viewing is available in the bookstore.
