Please click the link below to pre-order your nursing pin. The University Store typically does not stock all styles on a regular basis, so pre-ordering is essential to ensure the style you wish to purchase will be available before May’s ceremony. The deadline to order nursing pins for delivery before Graduation is March 2nd at 11:59PM. Due to extended manufacturing times, nursing pins will not be shipped to customers, or arrive in store, until approximately May 4th. If you are in town, we suggest choosing in-store pick up so you can save on shipping and have your pin in time for the Graduation ceremonies in Laramie. If you will not be attending the ceremony, please choose your desired shipping method and pins will ship as soon as they arrive in the store. After the ordering deadline as passed, please contact the University Store directly for any nursing pin inquiries at 307-766-3264.
Please note that the BSN guard attaches to an official pin via a small chain. While some nursing students opt to purchase the pin alone, the pin and guard may be purchased together to complete the set. The BSN guard is rarely purchased alone.
Fine Quality Regalia
Custom licensed fine quality regalia is available to any graduating student or Alumni. Typically fine quality regalia is reserved for individuals who pursue a career as a professor and may need a fine quality gown to use at future commencement ceremonies. There are 2 options for fine quality gowns that the University Store offers:
- Custom brown and gold gown, hood, and tam: These purchases go directly through the University Store. Please click this link to access the measurement form that will need to be filled out to ensure the gown is made to the individual’s exact measurements. Email the measurement form, along with the degree (ex. masters in zoology, doctorate in animal science, etc.), name, phone number, and shipping address of the individual ordering to email@example.com. Doctoral regalia sets are $610. Since gowns are custom, payment will need to be processed over the phone with the University Store before the order will be submitted to Jostens.
- Custom fine quality black gown, hood, and tam: Purchases for black fine quality gowns will go through this link. These are for individuals who did not graduate from the University of Wyoming OR simply UW Alumni who would prefer a black gown instead of a brown and gold gown. Price will fluctuate based on embellishments and style chosen.
Please note that fine quality regalia can take up to 8 weeks to arrive.
Faculty can rent their regalia by filling out the rental order form using the link below. The order deadline for rental regalia is Friday, April 3rd
Please be aware, if a faculty member orders regalia and does not attend the ceremony, the department will still be charged unless cancellation is requested BEFORE the order has shipped (typically no less than 2 weeks before the ceremony).
