SCHOOL OF LAW – December 2014 graduates of the Washburn University School of Law will find degree audit and commencement information at www.washburnlaw.edu/commencement. If you have questions about whether or not you have completed all requirements for graduation, please contact Donna Haverkamp, Student Records Coordinator, in the Dean’s office, Room 202 ([email protected] or 785.670.1661).

IMPORTANT – To ensure that you receive notice from the professional photographer that your proofs are ready to view after the ceremony, please go to www.gradimages.com and click on Pre-Event Registration to register your permanent email address. A link to this site is also located on the Commencement web site at www.washburn.edu/commencement. Your email address will not be shared with anyone else – it is only used by the professional photographer for notification of your proofs. Two photos will be taken during the ceremony – one as you receive your diploma cover and the second will be a portrait-style photo taken after you exit the stage. You are under no obligation to purchase photos, but the best guarantee to be able to view your proofs is to pre-register your permanent email address. You will also have the convenience of registering up to six (6) more emails of family or friends so they have the opportunity to view your proofs.
