Ordering Commencement Items
Herff Jones has opened up their web site to accept Houston orders. If you are interested in ordering a cap and gown (plus hood for Master’s and Doctoral candidates) regalia, please use this link to connect with the web page associated with TWU: www.herffjones.com/college/twu. It is imperative that you select Houston Campus from the drop down menu when placing your order. (Orders placed using the Denton/Dallas link will be shipped to Denton for distribution.) The DEADLINE for submitting orders online is Monday, March 25th. When possible, it is encouraged that you order cap, gown, tassel (and hoods for graduates) online. Late orders will be subject to an additional fee, with cash payment only being accepted at that point in time.
Please get in touch with me if you do not see your academic field in the selected options. We will make sure that it is added to the list of academic departments available.
Representatives from Herff Jones will be on campus Monday, April 8th from 12 noon – 1:00 p.m. for ring orders. Please come to the 2nd floor, across from 2305 with any questions you may have, and take the opportunity to view the assortment of rings to choose from. Herff Jones representatives will accommodate other orders at that time, though the preference is that orders for cap, gown, tassel (and hood for graduate students) as well as announcements be accomplished online.
Doctoral Candidates ONLY
Those receiving doctoral degrees will be presented with a moderately priced regalia when ordering online . If you have an interest in purchasing higher end doctoral regalia, it is requested you complete this order form, then scan and send it directly to: email@example.com. NOTE: The DEADLINE for the higher end regalia orders using the above attachment is Wednesday, March 20th.
Honor cords are available for undergraduate students ONLY who meet the GPA and credit hour criteria. The Graduate School considers acceptance into an academic program at a Master’s or Doctoral level an honor in and of itself. Undergraduate students are encouraged to contact Montra in our Enrollment Services Office at firstname.lastname@example.org to verify that they meet eligibility for honor cord purchase.
Distribution of Regalia Items (cap, gown, hood, tassel)
Herff Jones representatives will be back on campus Monday, April 29th from 11:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m. on the second floor for the initial distribution of cap and gown orders. When they depart from campus, they will leave all remaining items with the Student Life Office (Suite #2300) for you to pick up at a time of your convenience. Office hours are 8a – 5p Monday through Friday. I will be here through 6p on Mondays and Tuesdays, and until 8p on Thursdays and Fridays. Wednesdays only the office will need to close at 5p. If you need for me to stay later on a Monday or Tuesday evening, just email me. We can work out something.
The photography company for the May 2013 Commencement is Marc Nathan Photographers, Inc. www.mnathanphoto.com .
