Graduation Apparel

Students may order their caps and gowns. The cost is covered in your graduation fee.  

It is highly recommended that you remove your gown from the plastic, cool iron or steam the gown, check the fit of the cap, and verify that you have a black tassel. Any apparel problems should be brought to the attention of a Bookstore associate ASAP.

Wear your cap and gown to the commencement ceremony. Changing rooms are not available.

Your cap and mortarboard should sit on your head horizontal to the ground, not perched at an angle. The tassel hangs on the right.

The cap and gown are yours to keep. Do not return them at the end of the ceremony.

The gown may not be decorated with anything other than the approved cords/stoles/pins. Cap decorations must be in good taste or it will be replaced at Commencement.
