We encourage you to look through the resources below, some of which are requirements before your departure.

Graduation Sashes

Order your sash today!      

The deadline to order sashes for the fall semester has passed. We will have an opportunity to order sashes through our office again in late the spring semester. Each year, the Office of International Programs coordinates ordering Graduation Sashes for international students and study abroad attendees. This is a chance to recognize your achievements as a graduating International Ram by wearing a single or multi-country sash at graduation. The sashes are available to CSU students at a discounted rate.

How much does it cost?

The Office of International Programs will be discounting these sashes for $33 for a single flag sash and $43 for a double flag sash. If you order yourself, cost is ~$40 for a single sash and ~$50 for a double sash.

Where do I order?

If you wish to order 3 or 4 countries on your sash, email

What countries are available?

There are over 200 flags available! Here is the full list of options of flags when you place your order. Follow this link to browse and see how the different flags look like.

When is the deadline to order my Sash?

Orders must be placed by 11:59PM pm on Thursday, November 15th, 2018.

How can I pay?

You must pay online via credit card using our secure payment page. Instructions are at the bottom of the payment page.

When will I receive my sash?

You will receive your sash the week of graduation! We will send you an email to come to Laurel Hall and pick it up. We expect the pick-up dates to be the week of December 10th, 2018.
