The Campus Store is where you can get information about ordering your commencement items, including regalia (caps/tassels, gowns, and degree hoods), class rings, personalized announcements, diploma frames and that one last t-shirt. Visit the campus store in the Drysdale Student Center or online.
Commencement is a formal event, and graduates are encouraged to wear comfortable business casual attire appropriate for warm weather in addition to their University of Lynchburg cap, gown and degree hood.
Graduate One Stop
Graduate One Stop is your opportunity to ensure you’re on track to graduate. Representatives from the registrar’s office, business office, financial aid, academic and career services, graduate studies, alumni relations, and the Senior Gift Campaign will be on-hand to make sure you’ve got everything covered in time for graduation. After completing your required paperwork, you also may order your regalia.
Health science graduates in the Physician Assistant, Doctor of Physical Therapy, and Doctor of Medical Science programs aren’t required to attend the Graduate One Stop event. They should contact their program areas for instructions on how to order their regalia (cap, gown, and degree hood).
