Regalia, Pictures and Commemorative Items
Ordering, measurement, and distribution of regalia (cap and gown) will take place at the University Bookstore Patio beginning Thursday, May 4th through Friday, May 12th. Caps and gowns must be returned immediately following the ceremony. Return bins are located throughout campus.
Regalia ordering instructions are available at the USC Bookstore.
A professional photographer will take a picture of each graduate as the diploma cover is awarded on stage. Graduates will be emailed a proof of the pictures as well as an order form in the weeks following commencement. Due to fire laws and the policies of the Galen Center, no one will be permitted to stand in the aisles during the ceremony to take pictures. Guests are welcome to take pictures from their seats.
The El Rodeo Yearbook may be pre-ordered online and shipped directly to your home.
Class Rings, Diploma Frames, Announcement Cards
Class rings, diploma frames, and personalized commencement announcements by Herff-Jones may be ordered through the USC Bookstores website, or from Herff-Jones representatives during their sessions on campus throughout the spring.
Custom Stoles (“Sashes”)
While the majority of undergraduates rent (and do not purchase) their regalia, more and more are purchasing a stole (or sash) to wear on Commencement day. Stoles are available from the University Bookstore, and can be ordered with the USC logo or embroidered university seal, and can be customized with fraternity/sorority crests, graduation year, or other commemorative marks.
