Regalia and Commemorative Items

Caps and Gowns (Regalia)

To take part in commencement, graduates are required to wear appropriate graduation attire consisting of the official Biola University gown and tasseled cap. To maintain the celebratory nature of commencement, gowns cannot be altered or decorated. Caps may be decorated, but decorations may not rise more than two inches above the cap.

Students can purchase 2024 regalia starting today through the Jostens website. If you place your order by March 5, 2024, your order will be available for pickup at the Grad Fair on Metzger Lawn, Wednesday, April 17. The Biola Store will have it after April 17. All pick-up orders must be paid at the time of pick-up. For express pick up at the Grad Fair, prepay at the Biola Campus Store between April 1st and April 15th.

If you missed the March 5 deadline, you may still place your order through Jostens and have it shipped to your address (shipping fees apply).

The only way to get a 2024 sash is by ordering online.

Prices are subject to change at the time of ordering.
