Commencement marks the pinnacle of academic achievement, and the university proudly celebrates the occasion with formal pomp and circumstance. Please help us provide a memorable event for all involved.

Photographs are encouraged, but please remain in your seat when photographing or recording any portion of the ceremony.

Photographs of each graduate as they cross the stage at the doctoral and college recognition ceremonies are available from professional vendors who will contact all graduates with purchasing information. Color photographs are available from University Photography, P. O. Box 2454, Tuscaloosa, AL 35403-2454, 205-391-9500. Graduation proofs are usually mailed from the vendor within 7-10 days of graduation. There is no obligation to purchase these photos. Family pictures with the graduate in full academic regalia are generally taken before the ceremony.
