Q&A Regarding Regalia and Graduation Announcements

Still waiting to receive your regalia?

If you have not received your regalia for commencement yet, it may be waiting for you at your WSU campus bookstore. Check your email order receipt from regalia vendor Herff Jones and see if you had your regalia shipped to the bookstore. If so, please stop by and pick it up during business hours.

If you paid an additional $15.95 to have your regalia shipped to your home and it has not arrived yet, please contact Herff Jones customer service representative Howard Byrd at to track your order.

The WSU bookstores will have a supply of extra regalia items on hand to help address any last-minute needs.

Problems with the regalia shipped to your home?

Do I need to wear regalia in order to participate in commencement?
