Cap and Gown Rental, Distribution and Return
If you are unable to attend the Grad Fair, you still need to rent regalia for the ceremony. All regalia must be ordered by Friday, November 8th. After this deadline the next opportunity to rent will be at distribution. To rent regalia online please visit http://colleges.herffjones.com/college/northerncolorado/.

A representative from the Herff-Jones company will also be available at Commencement line-up one hour before the ceremony begins for adjustments to regalia accessories (tassels, hoods) and for last minute regalia distribution.
