Cap & Gown Orders


To Graduating Seniors from the President’s Office (email or call 309-556-3151):

Congratulations on your upcoming graduation on Sunday, May 3, 2015.

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 13-14 (Tuesday-Wednesday) from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the Hansen Student Center. You will wear this regalia at the Commencement ceremony on May 3 and at the Honors Convocation on April 8. 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 6-7. If you have questions, a representative from Herff Jones will be on campus during the order and delivery dates.
During both order and delivery dates (January 13-14 and April 6-7) you will have the opportunity to pre-register for email 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 email addresses to outside vendors.
