In addition to caps and gowns, the option to purchase announcements, college rings, diploma frames, stoles, and souvenir tassels is available on the Herff Jones website. Honor stoles and cords are given during Grad Fair Pickup to eligible students at no additional cost and are based on your overall GPA as of the previous semester.

Students are prohibited from wearing a borrowed cap & gown from an alumnus/a or another student – no exceptions.

Note: We encourage all students expecting to graduate to purchase their regalia early! Herff Jones will refund you the full cost of your cap & gown through April 25th. After this date, you may still request a refund, but a $25 restocking fee will be issued. The last day to request a refund on your cap & gown is May 19th for graduate students, and May 20th for undergraduate students.
For assistance on refunding your cap & gown, please contact the Bookstore by the day before commencement.
