Students participating in Commencement must wear regalia to the ceremony. Regalia must be ordered by the student no later than April 10.


How to order your regalia:

  • Place your regalia order online with Jostens by April 10:
    • Click on “Graduation Caps and Gowns”
    • Select “masters” or “specialist,” depending on your degree
    • Click “Customize” to enter your height, weight, and major
    • Click “Add to Cart” to complete payment
  • The master’s cap, gown, tassel & hood cost $55.45 plus $5.95 for shipping, total cost: $61.40. Your regalia will be shipped to the registrar’s office (see pickup days below).
  • Regalia is yours to keep.

If you are a veteran of one of the U.S. Armed Services, contact the Graduate Registrar to request complimentary honor cords to wear with your regalia.

Picking Up:  Your cap, gown and hood will be available for pick-up on the following days and times (a friend or family member may pick up for you on Wednesday if they bring a signed note from you).  Because the gowns are folded in a bag, you are encouraged to pick up your gown on Wednesday so you can press the wrinkles out of the gown.
