Graduation Sash

Students who studied abroad through Chico State are encouraged to purchase a special SASH for graduation to display the colors of the flag of the country where you studied.

If you studied abroad in more than one country, you can get a sash that is half one country and half another, which includes an ADDITIONAL charge for each extra country (up to 4 countries total). 

Due to staffing limitations this semester, we will not be ordering the international graduation sashes in bulk through our office as we have done in the past. 

Instead, students can order their grad sashes directly from the company we recommend and typically order them through, Vision Wear International(opens in new window)

Be sure to put in your order well before graduation to ensure it arrives on time, especially if you are ordering a sash with more than one country represented. 
Remind your Chico State friends who have also studied abroad to order one as well.  

If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact Study Abroad at 530.898.5415 or
