Graduation Sashes

Order your sash today for Fall 2019 Graduation!      

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. If you order  yourself, the cost is ~$40 for a single sash and ~$50 for a double sash.

How do I order my Sash?

Orders must be placed by 11:59 pm on Thursday, November 21, 2019.

You will receive your sash the week of graduation! We will send you an email advising that your sash has arrived and that you may come to Laurel Hall to pick it up. We expect the pick-up dates to be the week of December 16, 2019.

Order a single flag sash ($33+ tax) here.

Order a double flag sash ($43+tax) here.

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

You will receive two confirmation emails once you have successfully paid for your order. The first will be automatically generated by Storefront-International Programs. The second will come from our office,, within a week of placing your order. Please contact our office, is you do not receive both emails!
