All candidates for undergraduate and graduate degrees must rent official custom IU or Purdue apparel from Herff Jones to wear at Commencement.
If you will be a December 2020 graduate or a spring or summer 2021 graduate, you will be receiving information about renting your apparel beginning in January of 2021. You’ll be able to rent it at Countdown to Commencement or via a link that will be provided to you via email and on this website at the beginning of the spring 2021 semester.
NOTE: If you rented graduation apparel in 2020 and plan to return to campus in May 2021 if in-person Commencement is possible then, you will be contacted by Herff Jones about receiving a rent-free gown, and, if you rented graduate student apparel, a rent-free hood. Please bring your cap, tassel, and (if you received an undergraduate degree) stole with you to the ceremony. Questions? Email Herff Jones representative Patrick Cavazos.
