BYU-Idaho Alumni invites all graduates, including those not marching in Commencement, to attend Grad Fest. At Grad Fest, graduation candidates will pick up their cap, gown, and tassel. Graduation candidates can save $10 by pre-ordering their cap, gown, and tassel online from Herff-Jones from January 20 – February 24, 2023. After this date, cap, gown, and tassel bundles or tassel-only purchases can be made at the University Store or online at www.byuistore.com up until graduation day. While the store does its best to have inventory for all graduates, there is no guarantee that clothing will be available to purchase. Orders are filled on a first-come-first-serve basis.
Graduation candidates will also pick up their name card for Convocation and confirm the University has the correct information to mail their diploma. The University Store will have a select number of memorabilia items reflective of the BYU-Idaho experience available for purchase at 20% off. Graduation candidates will be able to enter into a drawing for great prizes and enjoy refreshments and other festivities at a celebratory send-off party.
If you’re unable to attend Grad Fest, name cards can still be picked up at the University Store on April 6, 2023, from 8:00 am – 5:00 pm.
It will be available to view online.
Tickets are required. Tickets will be available starting Monday, March 27, 2023, and can be obtained at byui.edu/tickets, the ticket desk inside University Store, or over the phone at 208-496-3170.
