Academic Regalia (Cap and Gown)
Graduate and undergraduate students should pick up their academic regalia (cap, gown, etc.) on March 19 and 20 at the bookstore between 11 a.m. and 6 p.m.
If you're unable to attend the Grad Fair, you may also stop by the bookstore between March 21 and May 18, during normal hours: Monday-Thursday, 8 a.m -6 p.m. and Friday 8 a.m.-4:30 p.m..
While the bookstore will make every effort to accommodate you, we cannot guarantee that your gown size or hood color will be available if you do not pick it up during Grad Fair.
For your convenience, we will ship your academic regalia (cap, gown, etc.) to your home. Shipping cost is $10, and must be paid in full via check or credit/debit card before your commencement attire will be shipped.
The cap and gown are yours to keep!
