Important information regarding Technique senior portrait sessions.

Scheduling Your Senior Portrait

For the purposes of the Technique yearbook, seniors are defined as undergraduate students who are in their fourth-year of their studies as determined by the Registrar's office.

Every Technique yearbook dedicates a section of the publication to photos and biographical information of seniors. Seniors can schedule their senior portrait session through Prestige Portraits using the button below. We strongly suggest you book your appointment as early as possible because spaces fill up fast.

Dress Code

There is no dress code for senior portraits. You can show up in a suit, dress, or even your pajamas. We have even had students bring their instruments and pets. We recommend wearing something that you are comfortable being pictured in, since your image will likely be on shelves of your peers for decades to come.

Discounted Yearbook for Seniors

When you arrive at your appointment, you will be able to order your yearbook for the discounted price of $60 by paying with cash or credit card. This pricing only applies to seniors who pay in person at their appointment, and is not redeemable online.

If you do not wish to get your senior portrait, you are still able to pre-order your yearbook for $90 on our order page.

Biographical Information

After you take your senior portrait, you will be emailed a link to the Technique Student Portal that allows you to add and update the biographical information you would like to appear in the yearbook. This includes your name as you would like it to appear, your hometown, your major(s)/minor, and a quote. If you choose not to fill this information out, your name will appear as recorded by the Registrar's office.

You can also edit your biographical information by visiting the Technique Student Portal and signing in. Students without a senior portrait will have their biographical information featured in a separate section for those not pictured. Access is restricted to fourth-year students, as determined by the MIT Registrar. Please contact us about any issues you encounter.

Missed out on your portrait session?

For all questions regarding scheduling senior portrait sessions, please contact Prestige Portraits at (800) 426-9533 or Technique has a publication deadline for senior portraits, so we unfortunately cannot accommodate any students who miss all scheduled senior portrait sessions offered by Prestige. Rest assured that your name will appear in the yearbook in a section that does not feature senior portraits.
