Shipping: The rate for shipping regalia to your home is $12.95 and includes a return shipping label for the gown (and hood if applicable). Caps and tassels are yours to keep.
Herff Jones is CU Anschutz's official regalia provider for our in-person commencement ceremonies. If you are ordering your cap and gown so that you may take pictures at home, you do not have to use our official vendor.
Keep in mind that if you order through Herff Jones, it will be the same quality rental regalia that is used in our ceremonies. Other vendors are more likely to offer "keeper" gowns that are sold rather than rented and lower quality fabric.
All regalia orders placed by April 16th will be delivered by May 20th. Any orders placed after April 16th may not be received until after the date of the spring commencement activities.
The final date to place orders is June 1, 2021.
All regalia and merchandise items will be shipped to graduates. On-campus distribution is not an option this spring.
Shipping has been discounted by Herff Jones to $12.95 for regalia and includes return postage for gowns and hoods (if applicable).
Regalia orders placed by the April 16th deadline are expected to be delivered with 19 business days.
Announcements and fine paper accessories have a standard lead time of 10-15 business days, but depends on lead time selected by the graduate.
Diploma frames are estimated to arrive in four weeks, but varies based on product selection and the lead time selected by the graduate.
Class rings are estimated to arrive in 10-12 weeks, but varies based on product selection and the shipping location.
Undergraduate students must return only their gown. Graduate students must return their gown and hood. All students may keep their cap and tassel. Return instructions along with a pre-paid return label will be included with your order.
Regalia and accessories (i.e. stoles, souvenir tassels) are eligible for a refund as long as they are unopened and unused.
Students also have the option to do a partial refund on their order. For example, if a graduate orders a package that includes a cap, tassel and a stole of gratitude and then no longer wants to take photos in their regalia, the student can request a refund for the gown only.
Diploma frames can be refunded as long as the request is made within 30 days of receipt. Return shipping is the responsibility of the customer. The refund will be issued once the frame is received by Herff Jones.
Sales of announcements and announcement accessories (i.e. tissue inserts) are non-refundable.
Class ring sales are non-refundable.
All shipping and handling costs are considered non-refundable.
Any product found to have a manufacturing or material defect will be refunded or replace by Herff Jones.
Due to the high volume of transactions that Herff Jones processes during graduation time, expect to receive refunds approximately 8-10 weeks after the returned item has been received by Herff Jones.
All date, time and location information will be removed from graduation announcements this spring. The announcements will include your name, degree, major, minors, specializations, and honors, which can be customized.
Unfortunately, Herff Jones does not have the ability to ship outside of the US. If you live outside of the United States, they recommend having items shipped to someone domestically who can forward them to you. Your program's student affairs team may be able to assist you with this as well.
Faculty who have been invited to participate in commencement exercises will receive information from their school/program about ordering regalia for in-person or virtual ceremonies.
Please contact your program's commencement coordinator for more information.
