A lot of hard work went into getting your diploma. Now, show it off. It’s easy to preserve your parchment by getting your degree framed on the spot at convocation. Or purchase a frame—with your university crest and logo—online or at either campus bookstore.

Convocation degree frame sales locations:

  • May 6, 2016 (Agriculture Diploma) – IGAC entrance, before the ceremony
  • May 12, 2016 (College of Medicine) – 2nd floor, Brodie Atrium, before and after the ceremony
  • May 31, June 1 & 2, 2016 (Spring ceremonies) – James Daly Fieldhouse, before and after the ceremony



The Artona Group Inc. professional photographers will capture two photos of you during your ceremony: one on stage receiving your parchment, and one after you exit the stage.

Photo previews and order information will be emailed and mailed to you directly if you opted-in during convocation registration. Forgot to opt-in or unsure if you did? Register here.
