Graduation Cords

Cords for 2020 will be announced in mid-April.  This year you will need to pick up tickets from Becky to purchase the correct cord for your group.

Graduation Regalia

Representatives from Jostens will be in the Pit from 9:00 am-3:00 pm on Tuesday, March 24 and Wednesday, March 25, to sell graduation announcements, gowns, hoods, zipper pulls, tassels, and tams. 

The cost of the regalia package is $147.00 plus tax, but you may also purchase each piece a la carte if you are borrowing some pieces of regalia from a previous graduate.  If you are borrowing regalia be sure to have a complete set, including the gown, hood, tam, and tassel (former grads will not have the zipper pull, as that is new this year).  If you have questions, ask Becky at, 405-325-4729, or in office 2123J.

In the event you cannot be on campus those two days, please go directly to the Jostens’ pop-up shop (located on the west side of the football stadium in the old University Bookstore location) and purchase these items in April (Be sure to tell them this is for JD regalia, as they will have a list of all the things you need). 

You may also order online and have the regalia shipped to your house.  Delivery could take up to five weeks.  Be sure to order the law package.
