Caps & Gowns

Academic dress (regalia) is a traditional black cap and gown. Academic regalia is required for your participation in the commencement ceremony and can be ordered beginning February 24, 2016.

On-campus students can begin purchasing academic regalia at the two-day Commencement Fair scheduled for February 24 and February 25, 2016 from 10:00 am to 6:00 pm in the University Bookstore.

Off-campus students can begin to order their academic regalia on February 25 from the University Bookstore or online at this link:


Additional Information

Please note that the bachelor's, master's and doctor's regalia unit includes the cap, gown and tassel.

You should take some care in choosing what you will wear under your gown. Your clothes and shoes will show under your gown; we recommend subdued colors and styles. Low-heeled shoes are strongly recommended for your comfort and safety.
