Cap and Gown Ordering
The Herff Jones cap and gown student ordering website opens in mid-January. For a full list of deadlines, students should refer to the Academic Attire for Students area of the commencement website. We highly recommend that students take advantage of the ship to home option. This will allow the student to skip the long lines on pick up day and identify any issues with their regalia early.
- March 22, 2017 10:00 pm CST - deadline for ship to home option (note: shipping fee applies)
- April 13, 2017 10:00 pm CST - deadline for student online ordering without late fee for on campus pick-up
