ACC Graduates can register online to schedule their grad portraits by visiting Lifetouch.ca/brandonmanitoba starting at a date to be announced some time early in 2018. Your session will include the traditional cap and gown poses and some casual poses with a variety of backgrounds available. Class photos will be scheduled through your respective program and a confirmed schedule will be posted and emailed to your ACC email account in March, 2018.
Lifetouch will be at ACC:
- Len Evans, North Hill ACC Campus, dates to be announced

There is a $10 sitting fee (required up front) and following your session, you can review your images online and choose your portrait package. Packages start at $65 and payment plans are available.
Please bring your sitting fee to your sitting. Cash or cheque only.
Lifetouch.ca will also be at graduation to take an individual photo as you receive your scroll from ACC’s President. Convocation photos can be ordered following the ceremony through Lifetouch.ca.
If you have any questions regarding your appointment, please contact the Lifetouch Representative, Nicole at 204-728-7283 or visit the local office at 316 - 10th Street, Brandon, MB.
Graduation Gowns, Caps & Tassels
ACC rents graduation gowns and hoods for graduates. If you attend grad, you’ll also get a cap and 2017 tassel to keep.
If you’re not coming to the BBQ Bash, ensure you arrive at the Keystone Centre by 12:30 pm on grad day. This gives you plenty of time to get your gown, attach the hood, take photos with your class and faculty and begin celebrating your day.
Please note that you must return your gown & hood after the graduation ceremony. A $200 charge will be added to your account if you don’t return your gown & hood.
Practical Nursing, Police Studies & Culinary Arts grads: you will wear your uniforms - but you still must register to attend Grad.
Credentials & transcript
If you've completed all courses required for graduation, including all final practicum courses, you'll be able to pick up your credential & final transcript when you return your gown after the ceremony. If you are waiting on a final mark, (often Practicum), we’ll mail you your credential & transcript as soon as we have all marks entered.
Congratulations! You’ve completed your studies at ACC and you’re moving on to the next chapter in your life. We wish you all the best and would like to welcome you to the ACC Alumni Association. Come see us at the post-grad reception in the UCT Pavilion and collect your gift.
We encourage you to stay involved with ACC after you graduate – we’ll help you maintain friendships, build professional connections and keep up with what’s happening at the college. The Alumni Association offers events and opportunities for graduates to reconnect with each other and the college. Visit Stay Connected and update your contact information so we can keep in touch!
