Update: GradFest 2020

LMU’s first priority is the safety and well-being of our students and staff. For that reason, we have decided to cancel GradFest and move all graduation regalia orders online.

 

GradFest has moved online. Visit herff.ly/lmu for all of your Commencement needs.

Students are encouraged to visit herff.ly/lmu to order graduation regalia, announcements, sashes, diploma frames, and other graduation and Commencement-related items. The last day to order your Graduation Package products online is Sunday, March 29, 2020.

Announcements

Personalized graduation announcements can be ordered directly from Herff Jones.

Diploma Frames

A variety of diploma frames is available for purchase from the University Bookstore.

Regalia

Cap and gown for Bachelor’s Degree and Master's Degree candidates can be obtained through Herff Jones. For additional assistance, please contact the University Bookstore at 310-338-2889. Students may not wear academic attire from previous ceremonies or other institutions.

  • Bachelor’s degree candidates - traditional commencement attire consists of a black gown and cap, gold tassel, and hood trimmed in velvet corresponding in color to the subject of the degree earned. For example, a student with a major of Civil Engineering wears a hood with orange velvet trim. Please refer to the Commencement website to ensure that you obtain the correct hood to wear at the ceremony.
  • Master’s degree candidates - traditional commencement attire consists of a black gown and cap, gold tassel, and hood trimmed in velvet corresponding in color to the subject of the degree earned. For example, a student majoring in any of the various fields of Education wears a hood with light blue velvet trim. In contrast, Doctoral degree candidates wear a cardinal robe with gold trim and coordinating tam. Please refer to the Commencement website to ensure that you obtain the correct hood to wear at the ceremony.

Accessories

Beginning April 1, LMU merchandise will be available for purchase at the University Bookstore. Students are welcome to wear special pins, honors cords, stoles, etc., that are offered by LMU organizations or programs but are not university-sponsored.
