Cap and Gown Purchase and Protocol

Orders for graduation regalia can be placed at the University Bookstore, Moraine Hall, or at the Salute to Grads, which is held approximately two months prior to commencement each semester. Orders for caps, gowns and hoods must be placed approximately six weeks prior to graduation. Honor cords and international sashes can also be ordered through the University Bookstore. Gowns will be available for pickup beginning Monday of graduation week at the University Bookstore. Payment must be made at the time of ordering. Graduates are advised to pick up their regalia prior to the day of graduation to allow time for pressing, or exchanges if needed.
