Personal Image Photo Studio OnlineUWI CEREMONY INFORMATION






- We photograph each and every graduate on stage but only print photographs for 

 those who have paid paid for a package.


- Every effort is made to provide the Graduand with two different photographs, one greeting the Chancellor and one collecting the scroll. In order to do this we need your assistance as our photographers are in a fixed position and do not have the authority to pause the proceedings for a retake of your photograph.


- When crossing the stage, pause briefly, make eye contact and shake the Chancellor’s hand. When receiving your certificate, pause briefly and make eye contact with the Campus Registrar.


- Ladies with long hair are asked to comb their hair away from the left hand side of their face.


- Name cards are provided by staff from the UWI Examinations Section. You must 

  maintain the order in which you were arranged or risk receiving the wrong 



- Please observe the persons ahead of you and take cue from their actions.


- Please pin hoods to shoulders to prevent slippage/ untidy appearance.


- Please do not wave to the crowd while greeting the Chancellor/ receiving  

  your certificate otherwise your photograph will show the back of your head.


- Please do not attempt to take any ‘Selphie’ with the Chancellor.


- Please do not greet any members of the platform party, it’ll mess up your  

  photo and possibly the photo of the person after you - be considerate.


- Please do not chew gum. when you smile at the Chancellor he’ll see the gum and the 

  camera may also record the gum in your mouth.


- Payments for portraits can be made via LINX (Debit Cards only) at the  

  portrait location (Student Activity Centre; Study Room No. 2; ). You do not have to

  go to the bank to make the payment.


- Tear off slips for Package #4 must be submitted to PIPS with confirmation of payment

  via email or fax for photos to be printed.  If you opted not to order any package at

  this time, Package #4 (Ceremony Only) can be ordered at any time in the future. 


- Reprints (Portrait or Ceremony Photos) can be ordered at anytime in the future.


- Packages (local) will be delivered via TTPOST Courier. Packages with overseas

  addresses are sent via Registered Mail.


- Some graduates will receive their packages before others so there is no need  

 to panic unless you did not receive your package by April 14, 2018. As a 

 general guide, packages are sent out based on the day on which your

 portrait was taken. PIPS will send an email when your package is collected

 by TTPOST telling you to expect your package in a couple of days.


- Undergraduate portraits are used in the UWI Yearbook. If you did not have your

 portrait taken, your photo will not appear in the Undergraduate Yearbook. The $50

 payment to UWI is for the Yearbook publication and not portrait photography.


- Thanks to your patronage we provide 3 Bursaries in the amount of $ 5000.00 each 

  through the UWI Endowment Fund.


- It has certainly been a pleasure serving you. We take this opportunity to 

  congratulate you on your academic achievement and wish you all the best in your 

  future endeavours.
