Online Grad Fest FAQs

How do I order regalia if I didn't go to Grad Fest?

As long as you are still on campus, you can visit the bookstore to purchase your regalia. You can also order online. Click here to order regalia using the online shop.

If Commencement is canceled, will my regalia purchase be refunded?

At this time, the university has not canceled Commencement. However, this is subject to change based on public health recommendations. If Commencement is canceled, students will be refunded for their regalia purchases.

I am graduating with a double major. How do I order two tassels?

We are currently working with our regalia vendor Oak Hall to offer a way to order multiple tassels. Once we have that information, we will provide it to graduates.

I wanted to take a cap & gown portrait at Grad Fest. Will there be retakes?

Unfortunately, due to the restrictions on group events on campus, at this time we are unable to schedule photo retakes. If an opportunity becomes available, we will reach out to all graduating students to let them know.

I was scheduled to take a yearbook photo. What do I do now?

Yearbook photos were scheduled with a different company than the Grad Fest portrait shoots. For more information on yearbook photos, please email tulaneyearbook@gmail.com.

I am graduating with a law degree, and I was supposed to pick up my regalia at Grad Fest. How do I get my regalia now?

Law School graduates may pick up their regalia from the uptown bookstore, which will remain open.

I am a PhD candidate, and I would like to rent my regalia instead of purchase. How do I do that online?

We are currently working with our regalia vendor Oak Hall to answer this question. Once we have that information, we will provide it to graduates.


 

Grad Fest Day 2 is moving online

At the recommendation of university administration, Grad Fest will move online after 6:00 p.m. on Wednesday, March 11. 

Students who were unable to attend downtown Grad Fest or the first day of uptown Grad Fest will still be able to purchase their cap & gown and any other graduation items.
