Commencement Update: Virtual Grad Salute Details Now Available

Congratulations, Graduates! Illinois Tech is hosting a virtual Graduate Salute for graduates who are interested in purchasing caps, gowns, tassels, diploma frames, alumni gear, or class rings. The university did not charge the graduation fee in the fall 2020 semester or the spring/summer 2021 semesters. Graduates are welcome to purchase any items they would like to help them celebrate this milestone achievement.

Caps, gowns, and tassels will be available from the Herff Jones website [Chicago-Kent students please see below]. If you would like to receive your gown prior to the virtual Main Commencement ceremony you should place your order by Monday, April 19, 2021. All other orders need to be placed by Wednesday, June 30, 2021. Any order placed after Wednesday, June 30, 2021, will incur additional fees.
Please Note: Student regalia will take 2.5 to 3 weeks to ship once ordered.
