Announcing virtual GradFair, a new way to get ready for Commencement

GradFair is an easy way to take care of all your Commencement needs in one place, at one time:

  • Rent and order Commencement items
  • Purchase graduation announcements, class rings, and diploma frames
  • Get your questions answered by Commencement vendors, University Events and Commencement Services, and the IU Alumni Association.
  • A link to the virtual GradFair will be posted on this website once it is available. Graduates will also receive an email containing the link.

Can't participate in GradFair?

Graduating students who are unable to tune in to GradFair can still rent and order Commencement items online. Order by November 16 to get the best deal; rental prices from November 17 until orders close on November 22 are increased by $75.

Update on academic apparel for May 2020 graduates

If you already have academic apparel that you rented in anticipation of a Commencement ceremony in May, please feel free to keep it through the virtual Commencement on Saturday, December 19, 2020. Then, please return your gown (and hood if you’re a graduate degree recipient) to Herff Jones in the provided postage-paid packaging by Thursday, December 31. If you plan to return to campus and take part in the May 2021 Commencement, rent-free gowns and hoods will be provided to you to wear. Keep your cap, tassel, and (if you’re an undergraduate degree recipient) Stole of Gratitude and remember to bring them to campus in May.

You’re almost there. Use our graduation checklist to prepare for Commencement.
