Purchase Graduation Attire for PhD Candidates
All PhD attire orders must be delivered to a campus address or shipped. Pick up in-store will not be allowed. You will be asked to choose a delivery method during the checkout process. Please choose campus delivery for all University buildings on central campus. All other addresses, including Fredericksen Court and the ISU Research Park, should choose PhD Attire Ground Shipping. Orders will arrive approximately 1 week prior to commencement.
- After clicking "Add to Cart" you will be asked to provide your weight, height, chest measurement and head measurement to ensure a properly fitting ensemble.
- To measure head, place measuring tape around head approximately one inch above the brow and pull snugly.
- To measure chest, place measuring tape under arms and around the widest part of your chest or bust.
- Please make sure to use a fabric measuring tape, not a retractable hardware one.
If you are unsure if you are measuring correctly, please come into the bookstore and we can ensure correct measurements.
