Regalia Pickup

Your orders can be shipped to your home directly at no additional charge. Please complete the forms at the Herff Jones website (link above).


Please note cap and gown regalia is NOT mandatory for the ceremony; many students opt to wear traditional, cultural dress or appropriate business attire. If you opt to wear a cap and gown, please wear business attire under your gown as this is a formal occasion. The mortarboard is worn flat and straight on your forehead. Safety pins and bobby pins will be available but it is best to bring your own if possible.

For master’s candidates, the tassel goes on the left to signify previous possession of an academic degree. For bachelor’s candidates, the tassel is worn on the right side before the degree is conferred; once the degree is conferred you will change the tassel from the right to the left side.

All Herff Jones regalia items are made out of 100 percent post-consumer waste and are biodegradable. For any questions related to ordering your regalia, contact rsvp@miis.edu.

Recycling Your Cap and Gown

Your cap and gown are yours to keep; however, you may also donate them to future graduates.
