Unfortunately, we do not offer class rings. However our colors are blue and white. Please locate an online or local retailer to purchase a ring.

When entering into the commencement ceremony, your graduation tassel should be worn on the right side of your mortarboard (your cap). After the reading of the names during the ceremony, you will be told at a specific time to flip your tassel to the left side of your mortarboard which is an acknowledgment of acceptance of your certificate or degree.

If you choose to purchase a graduation gown, here are a couple of quick tips:

Turn the gown inside out and use the “Warm” setting on your iron or use a steamer. If ironing, move the iron continuously; don’t stay too long in one spot, or you may burn your gown. Hang the gown after ironing to keep it wrinkle-free.

We Can't Wait to See You There!
