As a member of our community, we want you to be proud of your academic accomplishments and wear your school colors with pride! Show your spirit with university gear, class rings, and diploma framing. If you have questions, please contact commencement@apus.edu.

If you're going to attend the ceremony, this video provides a few helpful hints on what you should wear and where to purchase your regalia.

 

Regalia, Honors Cords, & Stoles

Jostens online ordering has now closed. To place an expedited order, please call them directly at: 1-800-854-7464.

We are proud to partner with Jostens Company and give you the Elements Collection regalia, offering both affordability and sustainability. Once you receive your gown, you can enter a code on Josten's website and they will donate $1 to an environmental sustainable project! To learn more, visit the Student Give-Back Program.

All graduates are responsible for purchasing and bringing their regalia to commencement. You should arrive dressed and ready for your ceremony. A hooding ceremony for master’s candidates will not take place during the ceremony. Ceremony marshals will be available before the ceremony to assist graduates needing help with their academic hood.

Please review the information below to assure you have the appropriate attire at commencement.

*Graduates obtaining a second master’s degree may purchase a hood individually. Please contact Jostens Company, by phone, at 1-800-854-7462 ext 15014 to order today!
