It is important that you pre-order your student regalia by March 22, 2013:

You will pick up your regalia package in person on Commencement Prep Day.
- If you missed the pre-ordering deadline, you will need to purchase your regalia in person at Commencement Prep Day (April 26). A fee of $65 will be due that day and sizes cannot be guaranteed. Please contact the Bookstore directly for details.
