To Graduating Seniors from the President’s Office
(e-mail smilliga@iwu.edu or call 309-556-3151)

Congratulations on your upcoming graduation on Sunday, May 1, 2011.

Please remember to order your cap and gown from Herff Jones and confirm your degree with a representative of the Registrar’s office on JANUARY 18-19 (Tuesday-Wednesday) from 10 am to 3 p.m. in the Hansen Student Center.  You will wear this regalia at the May 1 Commencement ceremony and at the Honors Convocation on April 13.  There is no charge; the University provides the regalia for you.  Other vendors will be on site if you wish to purchase personalized announcements and class rings. 

Cap and gown delivery will occur on April 11-12.  If you have questions, a representative from Herff Jones will be on campus during the order and delivery dates.

Students who are unable to place orders on January 18-19 may order online or at the bookstore AFTER confirming their degree with the Registrar’s office (Holmes 110 or 309-556-3161).  The Herff Jones ordering link for IWU will be provided to you on February 1 for use through March 8.  Students may also contact Nancy at the Illinois Wesleyan Bookstore (309-556-3059) to order caps and gowns before March 8, 2011.

During both order and delivery dates (January 18-19 and April 11-12) you will have the opportunity to pre-register for e-mail distribution of your commencement photo proofs with GradImages.  They are offering $5 off any $25 order from students who pre-register.  The University does not provide our e-mail addresses to outside vendors.
