While this is not a ticketed ceremony, we are encouraging all graduates to complete the HHP Graduate Recognition Ceremony Survey, so we have a better idea of which graduates will be attending. Please complete the survey at this link. HHP Graduate Recognition Survey

A professional photographer will take a picture of each graduate as they cross the stage. Access to photographs after the ceremony will be given by the photographer. Graduates should look for an email and/or packet in the mail from the photographer that contains the access code for the pictures. Make sure that you have updated your mailing address in Pirate Port. Please note that it could take up to a month or more to receive the code due to the volume of graduates.
