2018 Individual Graduate Photos:

A professional photographer from Island Photography will take photographs of each graduate as they are recognized during each Commencement ceremony. This does not represent an endorsement by Fredonia and there is no obligation to purchase. It is a service provided to our Commencement families and guests.

Within 48 hours after Commencement, students will be emailed a secure link and a PIN to view and order photos. Students can also register the email addresses of friends and relatives so that they would receive a direct link to their photos by visiting the website.

For questions, graduates should contact Island Photography customer service at (800) 869-0908 or email.
