Make note of the following spring event in preparation for Commencement weekend:
After LMU: Cap and Gown Pick-Up
Update: LMU's first priority is the safety and well-being of our students and staff. For that reason, we have decided to cancel the 2020 After LMU event.
Students who ordered regalia for pick up at the After LMU event may arrange to have it shipped home. Specific information from Herff Jones will be posted when it becomes available.
Students may order online graduation regalia, announcements, sashes, diploma frames, and other graduation and Commencement-related items from Herff-Jones.
During Commencement Weekend, convenient locations throughout campus will have flowers, light snacks, coffee, and beverages for sale. Specific information will become available closer to the event.
LMU merchandise will be available at the University Bookstore. Students are welcome to wear special pins, honors cords, stoles, etc., that are offered by LMU organizations or programs but are not university-sponsored.
Personalized graduation announcements can be ordered directly from Herff Jones.
Jostens ring representatives will be on campus for class ring orders. Look for the Jostens signs posted around campus. For locations and times, contact the Bookstore (lower level of the Von der Ahe Building, 310/338-2889).
Commemorative footage available on digital downloads and flash drives with an unobstructed perspective of the Commencement Mass and Commencement ceremonies will be created by eVid (formally known as Graduation Nation). Go to https://videos.evid.com/LoyolaMarymountUniversity to order. For inquiries, please email email@example.com.
A variety of diploma frames is available for purchase from the University Bookstore.
Parents and students may pre-order flowers and leis from Graduation Bouquets and pick them up on campus on Commencement morning.
Professional photographers from GradImages will take students’ pictures when they receive their diploma cover. For more information, contact GradImages (firstname.lastname@example.org, 800/261-2576). Approximately four days after the ceremony, proofs of these photos are sent to each student to the e-mail and street addresses the student specified on the back of the name card. Students should write their street and e-mail addresses on the back of their name cards, as they are used to specify where Commencement picture proofs should be sent. It is important that students stay in the same order as when they handed in their name card, since this order determines which proof-photos they will receive.
Cap and gown for Master’s Degree candidates can be obtained through Herff Jones (http://herff.ly/lmu). Doctoral candidates place their own regalia order, allowing 6-8 weeks for delivery. Students may not wear academic attire from previous ceremonies or other institutions.
At Loyola Marymount University, traditional commencement attire for Master’s degree candidates consists of a black gown and cap, gold tassel, and hood trimmed in velvet corresponding in color to the subject of the degree earned. For example, a student majoring in any of the various fields of Education wears a hood with light blue velvet trim. In contrast, Doctoral degree candidates wear a cardinal robe with gold trim and coordinating tam. Please refer to the following list to ensure that you obtain the correct hood to wear at Commencement.
