Order Your Commencement Gear!
PLU follows the Academic Costume Code as outlined by the American Council on Education (ACE). All Graduation candidates at Commencement are to wear Regalia including black caps with black tassels, black gowns. Master and Doctoral candidates will also have black hoods lined with gold to represent PLU and trimmed with the color indicative of the degree the student is earning. Honorifics awarded by PLU (Wang Center pins, honors cords, etc.) may be worn. All cultural heritage adornments and objects of cultural significance are also welcome as approved regalia for ceremonies.
Regalia ordering will open the beginning of April.
Regalia may be ordered through Herff Jones.
You may also order your regalia through our local sales rep by calling 360.254.7870. Should you get voice mail, please leave a message and your call will be returned.
Graduates will pick up their regalia at the PLU Grad Fair, which will be held on campus on Tuesday, May 23 and Wednesday, May, 24, 2023.
Diploma Frames may be purchased online from Herff Jones or online, in-store at the Lute Locker (located within the lower level of the Anderson University Center), or at the Tacoma Dome.
Announcements may be purchased through Herff Jones and orders are accepted after the regalia order deadline.
Class Rings may be purchased through Balfour and orders are accepted after the regalia order deadline.
