Ordering and Picking up Your Academic Regalia for Commencement

All graduate students participating in Commencement must rent their academic regalia. You will not be able to use a cap, gown, or hood used by friends in other Commencements. To insure a proper fit, you must order the exact cap size you need; you must also order the correct hood for your degree. You have two options to rent these items:

1) Contact the Bradley Bookstore to place your order by March 30, 2014.

2) Submit your order on line at www.herffjones.com/college/bradley by March 30, 2014. 

The rental cost is $70.98 for the Master candidates and $123.98 for Doctor of Physical Therapy candidates. The Masters candidates’ tassel on the cap is a keepsake tassel and the Doctor of Physical Therapy candidates receive a separate keepsake tassel. All orders received after the deadlines must be made in person at the Bookstore. Late orders will be assessed an additional fee of $10.00. We cannot guarantee that late rental orders can be fulfilled.  Please remember the cap, gown and hood are a rental and must be returned after Commencement.

If you would like to purchase any academic regalia to keep, you can place a special order with the Bradley Bookstore. Please contact them for the cost of purchasing any academic regalia. You may not keep the hood you use at Commencement.

The Bradley Bookstore also has invitations, diploma frames, and many other graduation accessories available. Stop in and see their selection. They will also be at the Graduation Fair.
