Photographs may be taken during the ceremony, but you may be restricted from certain areas. We contract a photographer to capture graduates in their caps and gowns holding their diploma covers as they step away from the stage. Proofs and order forms will be mailed after graduation, or you can preorder.
Our trained Commencement organizers provide services to graduates and guests who need accommodations. IU Southeast will also have an ALS interpreter at the ceremony, and closed captioning will be provided both on the screens and live streams.
Please contact Matt Springer at email@example.com or (812) 941-2243 three weeks prior to the ceremony if you or a loved one will need accommodations.
