Faculty Can Rent Commencement Regalia from the UHD Bookstore

Graduation fairIt's graduation time again! The Fall 2013 Commencement will be Sunday, Dec. 15. The bookstore has a convenient rental program for faculty who do not own their own regalia.

Orders must be placed prior to Nov. 29 in order to avoid late fees. These orders should arrive the week of Dec. 9 and renters will be contacted by phone and email to pick items up at the bookstore.

For any orders placed after Nov. 29, an additional $10 fee will be added to the order for rush shipping. The boostore will not be able to guarantee any orders that are placed on or after Dec. 6.

The UHD Bookstore requires prepayment for all orders and accepts cash, all major credit cards (with valid identification), or a charge to any department via PCard or purchase voucher with prior approval from the department.

Any items left with the bookstore on Friday, Dec. 13 will be available at the ceremony on Sunday, Dec.15 in the faculty reception area. If you would prefer, you can make arrangements for the Bookstore to deliver your regalia to graduation and the Bookstore staff will be on hand to retrieve the rented regalia at the conclusion of the graduation.

Please do not hesitate to contact Bill Schaub or L'erin Turner-Holmes at 713-221-8145 with any questions.
