Cap and Gown

All graduating students and faculty/staff who participate in the Commencement ceremony must wear appropriate commencement attire.  The 2 options to order your cap and gown through the Barnes and Noble Bookstore at Louisiana Tech University are as follows:

  1. Online Cap and Gown Order Form – Deadline to order online is January 10, 2020
  2. Paper forms submitted to the Bookstore  – Deadline to order by paper form is January 10, 2020

The deadline to order your cap and gown is January 10, 2020.  Any order received after the deadline will be charged a $15.00 late fee.  You may pick up your cap and gown order at the Barnes and Noble Bookstore on campus February 17, 2020 through February 19, 2020.  Invitations, school rings, custom diploma frames, and various graduation gifts can be purchased at the Bookstore, or online at the official Balfour school store.

If you are a member of an academic honor society, cords or stoles specifically approved for wear at commencement should be ordered through your chapter advisor or chapter president. You will be asked to remove unauthorized items from robes and mortar boards before commencement begins.

Honor Society Cords

Honor Society graduation accoutrements (cords or shawls) are ordered through the local chapter of that honor society.  The local chapter verifies individual eligibility each quarter.  

Students eligible for Latin honors at commencement (cum-, magna-, and summa cum laude) do not receive or wear a special cord or stole/shawl.  Instead, the appropriate Latin honor is announced when they cross the stage.  It is also listed int the Commencement Program, embossed on their diploma, and permanently loaded into their official transcript data.
