Student Information


Senior Portraits and Graduation Announcements

Senior portraits may be scheduled independently with local photographer Michelle De La Vara. Graduation announcements may be ordered through Herff Jones.

Ceremony Photography

GradImages will photograph each graduate receiving their diploma at Commencement in December. Proofs will be e-mailed to all graduates who supplied e-mail addresses; otherwise, proofs will be mailed to home addresses.

Visit the GradImages website to preregister. Enter your email and up to 6 emails of loved ones who would like to share in your accomplishments by viewing and ordering your photos. By submitting your information early, you can rest assured that photo samples will be quickly and conveniently provided to you and all the others registered as soon as they are available after the event.

After graduation, order online at GradImages or call 800.261.2576.

Due to the layout of the facilities, it will not be possible for friends and family members to leave their seats during the ceremony. Anyone attempting to leave their seats and stand in the aisles will be restrained from doing so.

Distribution of Diplomas

Graduates who have fulfilled all academic and financial obligations to the College by the end of the spring semester will have their diploma and cover mailed to them at the mailing address on file.

Outstanding holds, financial obligations, and disciplinary sanctions with Whittier College will prevent the release of your diploma. Please make arrangements to resolve any outstanding holds and obligations prior to your graduation.
