Commencement Regalia

The third-party vendor that provides academic regalia, Herff Jones, has experienced significant delays in delivering some orders. In response, Pacific has been actively sourcing inventory and supplies from other vendors, in addition to having continuous and ongoing conversations with Herff Jones. We have received assurances that remaining items are being shipped.

Cap and Gown

Wearing a cap and gown is a requirement for participating in our Commencement and Diploma and Hooding ceremonies. Graduation attire (cap, gown, tassel, hood) can be ordered through Herff Jones or the Stockton Bookstore. If you are unable to order your cap and gown during the on-site Grad Fair event, please call 209.460.3875 or email for further instructions, or order through the DeRosa University Center's Lathy Bookstore.

Graduation Announcements

Personalized graduation announcements require a few weeks for processing. The University works with both Signature Announcements and Herf Jones to provide licensed announcements for graduates. Both vendors will provide online ordering options at  Herff Jones and Signature Announcements.
