Spring 2019 Candidates for Graduation:
CAP AND GOWN DEADLINE:
In order to participate in commencement exercises, you must purchase your cap and gown from your campus bookstore no later than Friday, April 5, by 2:00 pm. Be sure to sign the log (at the bookstore in Hammond or in Schwarz 40 in Westville) when you purchase your cap and gown, as the commencement participation list is generated from the information on this log. Retain your receipt. You will need it when you pick up your guest tickets for the ceremony.
Candidates who live out-of-state and are unable to come in person to the Bookstore or who cannot attend a Graduation Expo may make their purchase by calling (219) 989-2332 and the Bookstore will mail the cap, gown, tassel, and guest tickets.
GUEST TICKET DEADLINE:
All guests including children (infants and toddlers) must have a ticket in order to attend the commencement ceremony. Candidates for graduation receive 4 guest tickets at the Graduation Expo. Grad Expo dates for Spring 2019 are not yet available. Participants who were unable to attend a Grad Expo can pick up their guest tickets after the Grad Expo dates but no later than Friday, April 5, in the Enrollment Services Center located in Lawshe Hall Room 130 on the Hammond campus or in Schwarz 40 on the Westville campus. In order to receive your tickets, you must present the receipt from your cap and gown purchase.
NOTE: There is no guarantee that extra tickets will be available. If there are, candidates for graduation will be notified by the Office of the Registrar via email to their PNW email account with information on when and how to obtain additional guest tickets (typically no more than 2 tickets).
Refer to the Graduation and Commencement web site for more details as they become available.
