Indiana University - College Rings and Graduation Products by Herff Jones

Online ordering for December Commencement is now open!

If you don't order a cap and gown online, you will be able to rent them in person during distribution week. Apparel will be available on a first-come, first-served basis, and the late fee will be applied unless you are a doctoral graduate.

Rental Charges During Distribution Week

A late rental charge of $75 is added during the last week of online rental orders and for caps and gowns ordered during distribution week. Fees will be as listed below

Associate and Bachelor degree candidates have the option of purchasing additional stoles of gratitude for $25.

Distribution Times and Places

Caps and gowns will be distributed for December Commencement Dec. 15-19 in the IU Bookstore in the Indiana Memorial Union. Hours are 8 a.m.-6 p.m. On Saturday, Dec. 20, distribution will occur at the Gladstein Fieldhouse starting at 8 a.m. This option should be regarded as a last resort because time will be short, supplies limited, and lines potentially long.

Monday and Tuesday are the preferred days for students whose last names begin with the letters A through N. Wednesday and Thursday are the preferred days for students whose last names begin with the letters O through Z.

You must have a picture ID to pick up your apparel. If someone else is picking it up for you, that person must bring a copy of the receipt you received either in person or via e-mail, and a note from you indicating permission to collect your cap and gown.


All rented apparel must be returned to Gladstein Fieldhouse after the ceremony. Return instructions will be available at pick-up.

Note: Cap and gown orders are available only for the closest upcoming ceremony. Students intending to graduate in the Spring of 2015 may not order apparel in December of 2014. Any orders placed in the spring will not be carried over to the fall, and refunds will not be given.
