Regalia is not required to participate in the virtual ceremony but you have earned that cap and gown! If you would like to wear your purple and gold visit Herff Jones beginning March 12 to see the available options for regalia rentals and accessories. Grads will be able to order on this site until April 23 to guarantee delivery prior to May 21.

With your regalia rental you will receive a mailing label you can use to return your regalia for free by June 30.
