Graduation Sash FAQs

  1. When will I receive the graduation sash? The sashes will be shipped to the Office of Education Abroad 2-3 week before commencement. Students who have submitted (and paid) orders will be notified via email when the sashes have arrived and will be communicated pick-up instructions
  2. What if I don't order a graduation sash by the date above? You can buy a graduation sash individually from Vision Wear (however, by ordering through OEA, a group discount is applied and it is cheaper overall)
  3. What if I'm graduating next semester or next year, should I buy a graduation sash now or later? The Office of Education Abroad collects orders for graduation sashes in the fall and spring semester. You can order a graduation sash whenever you'd like.
