Students participating in Indiana University Northwest’s 2011 Commencement ceremonies should plan to order graduation apparel no later than April 1.

Orders can be placed online at until April 8, but after April 1, a $25 fee will be imposed for late orders. Gown rental costs are $50 for bachelor’s and associate’s degree candidates and $70 for master’s degree candidates. Other items available for order include diploma frames, souvenir tassels, class rings, announcements and more.

For the first time, all IU campus participants will be robed in custom-made black rental gowns. Undergraduates will be able to keep the crimson satin “stole of remembrance” that is worn over the gown as well as the cap and tassel.

The 2011 IU Northwest Commencement will take place at 4 p.m., Thursday, May 12 at the Genesis Center in Gary. Gowns must be returned immediately following the ceremony at the Genesis Center.
