Commencement Photos, Inc. (CPI) of Tewksbury, Massachusetts, provides photography services at many of BU’s school, college, and department convocations. CPI captures the moment that each graduate is awarded his/her diploma, known as handshake photography. Commencement Photos will mail packets with photo package ordering information in early April. If you do not receive this mailing, please call CPI at 978-851-5924 for assistance.


Video recordings are available for the All-University Commencement Exercises on May 19, 2019 as well as many of the school, college, and department convocation ceremonies throughout the weekend.
