NDSU Commencement information, dates and times can be found on the NDSU Commencement Page.


Due to the ongoing COVID-19 situation and the postponement of the Spring 2020 commencement ceremony, the following changes and updates have been made regarding graduation regalia purchases.

Bachelor Regalia
All bachelor graduation regalia ordered directly from the NDSU Bookstore for the Spring 2020 commencement ceremony is eligible for a full refund. To get a refund on your order, email [email protected] with the subject line that includes Graduation Refund and Your Order Number if possible. Please confirm whether you would like your tassel and/or honors medallion and provide a shipping address as well.

Master’s and Doctoral Rental Regalia
If you have already ordered and would still like to wear/use your regalia, you can have your order shipped to your home rather than picking your gown up on campus. Please us the following link to provide Herff Jones your home shipping information:

Students can return their cap and gown (including tassel, stole, hood) by using their prepaid mailing label and filling out the return request form. If items are unused, students will receive a full refund less shipping. The return form can be found here: For additional information, please contact Herff Jones customer service team at 1-800-837-4235.
