Guests may take photographs from their seats; however, in order to avoid obstructing the view of others, you are asked not to approach the stage area. SUNY Cobleskill has contracted with Commencement Photos Inc., to take photographs of each graduate receiving his/her diploma from President Terenzio. Commencement Photos Inc., will contact graduates via email regarding the possible purchase of these photographs. The College does not benefit financially from this arrangement; it is provided as a service to graduates and their families. You are not obligated to purchase the photographs.
Diplomas will not be distributed at Commencement. They will be mailed to each graduate's address submitted on graduation application upon certification by the faculty that all graduation requirements have been met.
