Congratulations to the Class of 2020! 


STATUS UPDATE: Cancelation of Commencement Ceremonies

Due to public health concerns related to the COVID-19 pandemic, Rutgers has canceled all events scheduled through the end of May, including commencement ceremonies. The university is working to identify and explore alternate ways to celebrate the Class of 2020. Details will be provided as they become available.  Your ideas on ways our campus community might best celebrate graduation this year are valued. Please share them at:

We have received many inquiries about academic regalia. To purchase regalia, visit here. For refund on previously purchased regalia, please contact Commencement Specialists, Herff Jones College Division, at 1-800-837-4235.

If you have already ordered your cap and gown, and would like to still receive your cap and gown to commemorate your achievement and future celebrations, Herff Jones and The Barnes and Noble University District Bookstore will now ship gowns direct to home addresses on file.  This will be done at no extra charge to Graduates.  Shipping will start once The University and The Bookstore can safely resume on campus operations. All deadlines associated with ordering and fees have been extended indefinitely.

We congratulate you and the Class of 2020 on your achievements!
