will rent their gowns rather than purchase them. This approach reinforces our
environmental mission. All graduates planning to participate in Commencement
activities are required to wear a cap and gown. The wearing of this common
attire places the common concern of academics -- the search for truth -- above
individual personalities. The academic garb carries great honor and pride, and
all graduates are to be robed appropriately.
To rent a gown, students must contact Darlene Zar in the bookstore by Friday, March 8, 2013. After this date, students will be charged a late fee for gown orders. She can be reached at email@example.com or by phone at (715) 682-1277.
Students may create or use any vendor to order their own invitations.
Please note that receipt of this information does not guarantee that a student will be eligible to participate in Commencement activities. Only students who have completed or registered for all course requirements, or those who show evidence that all requirements will be met by August 2013, will be allowed to participated in Commencement.
Any student who does not meet the graduation requirements within this time limit will not be eligible to participate in Commencement. However, a student may file a petition requesting he or she be allowed to participate early if there are extenuating circumstances. Petitions for early participation must be filed with the Registrar's Office by April 12, 2013.
