Cap & Gown

As a member of our community, we want you to be proud of your academic accomplishments and wear your school colors with pride! Show your spirit with university gear, class rings, and diploma framing.

If you're going to attend the ceremony, this video provides a few helpful hints on what you should wear and where to purchase your regalia.


Order your Cap & Gown

The deadline to order regalia for the 2020 Commencement Ceremony is April 16, 2020.

All graduates are responsible for purchasing and bringing their cap and gown, as well as any additional regalia they choose to wear, to commencement. You should arrive dressed and ready for your ceremony. A hooding ceremony for master’s candidates will not take place during the ceremony. Ceremony marshals will be available before the ceremony to assist graduates needing help with their academic hood.

Please review the information below to assure you have the appropriate attire at commencement.

*Graduates obtaining a second master’s degree may purchase a hood individually. Please contact Jostens Company, by phone, at 1-800-854-7462 ext. 15014 to order today!
