Graduation Sash Orders Due

Friday, November 11 / 5 p.m. / Ronan 330

As a study abroad alumnus, CMU students have ​the option to wear a sash representing their host country at the CMU graduation ceremony; international students may wear a sash representing their home country.

To help reduce the cost to students, the Office of Study Abroad will be placing a bulk order, allowing students to get a group discount and save on the cost of shipping. To place an order for a graduation sash, please complete the order form and submit it to the Office of Study Abroad (Ronan 330) no later than Friday, November 11 at 5 PM.

To view the sashes (or place an individual order), please go to the Vision Wear International website at the following link:, select "Graduation Sashes" in the menu bar.  The approximate cost per sash is $31.00 for a single country sash*, but this may be lower depending on the number of sashes ordered.

Sashes are expected to available for pick up two weeks before the December commencement ceremony, an email will be sent out once they arrive and are ready to be picked up.

Congratulations for choosing to study abroad through CMU.  The Office of Study Abroad staff sends you best wishes as you prepare to graduate.

​*It is possible to order a sash representing up to four countries (at an additional cost) if you studied abroad multiple times and would like more than one country represented on your sash. The cost is approximately $11 per additional country.
