Central Lakes College is planning to provide two professional photos of each student during the ceremony. One photo will be on stage, as the graduate receives their diploma cover (mask on) and the other will be off stage with the graduate holding their diploma cover (mask off).  These high-quality photos will be available to download for free the morning following the ceremony at this website: https://jeffcollinsphotography.smugmug.com/Central-Lakes-College-Commencement-Photos
Please see your student email to get the password.

Other photo options:
There will be several photo opportunities before and after the ceremony. Graduates can take photos at one of several photo stations/photo backgrounds throughout the campus or outside.

For the safety of our graduates and following the current MN Department of Health COVID guidelines for indoor events, CLC campuses are closed to the public on commencement days.
