Photos Needed for Virtual Graduation

As a part of the virtual ceremony, graduate photos will be featured. Please chose one of the below options to have your photo included:


To Submit Your Own Photo
Graduates can submit their own photo to our Photo Submission Form using this link. The deadline for photo submissions is Monday, April 19.


Personal photos submitted by graduates should be in good taste. Mitchell reserves the right to refuse a submitted photo. In such cases, Student Services staff will connect with the graduate to secure an alternate image.


To Have Your Photo Taken on Campus
If you prefer to have your photo taken on campus, Student Services will be hosting graduate photo sessions on the Statesville Campus. Graduates may sign up using this link to come to campus and have a headshot taken for use in the virtual ceremony.

Please note:
– On-campus photo sessions will capture one professional-style headshot for use in the virtual ceremony ONLY.
 – ONLY graduates will be photographed. No friends, family or props, please.
– Graduates will not be able to purchase or obtain digital copies of their image.
– Recommended clothing is solid dark or light-colored dress or business attire. 
– Each photo session should take approximately 15 minutes.
– Face coverings are required to be worn in all campus facilities.
