Traditional Regalia:

In observance of tradition, all participants in commencement ceremonies will wear full academic regalia, consisting of a traditional gown with SDSU medallion and a mortarboard with red and black tassel. Regalia will be provided to students at the Grad Fest. 


Grad Fest will be held at the ISU STEM building, in April. Grad Fest is a special ‘grads only’ event with special offers, professional photo shooting, games, prizes and free food. At Grad Party students will be explained commencement ceremony specifics and logistics, dressing and other important detail.

Graduation portrait photographers will be available during GradFest. Students will be photographed wearing academic regalia.

Each graduate will have the opportunity to select preferable pictures from the link that will be sent to each student after the graduation ceremony.

Photos will then be featured in the Commencement Newsletter and will be shown on a big screen during the Commencement Ceremony, as they accept their diplomas.
