All students intending to participate in the May commencement ceremonies must place their order online prior to the deadline. The cost of the attire – consisting of a gap, gown, tassel, degree-specific hood (or stole for credential and certificate students), and stole of gratitude – is covered by your graduation fee. Attire will be available for pick up in the HNU bookstore beginning April 27. Orders must be placed online at http://herffjones.com/college/hnu.
A professional photographer will be on campus between 10am and 3pm in the Founders Classroom to take individual formal pictures of students who are graduating. Commencement attire will be provided for this event. Appointments are not required but to sign up for a time click here.
