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 and a Unique ID number in early April. If you do not receive this mailing or you do not have your code, 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.
