Commencement photographs will be taken of each graduate crossing the dais by a representative of a private company, GradImages. Within three to seven days, a complimentary proof will be made available to all students who have registered online with the company by visiting and clicking on the Pre-Event Email Registration link to designate Columbus State and enter their contact information. If the student enters additional e-mail addresses for parents or other relatives, they also will have access to the digital proofs. Orders may then be placed online at or by calling 1-800-261-2576.
