Cap, Gown and Memorabilia Information

Academic regalia, or the dress uniform of one of the U.S. Armed Forces, is required. Graduating ROTC cadets can wear their uniforms starting in Spring 2024.

The deadline to order caps and gowns online through Herff Jones was March 22, 2024. Regalia orders can now be made in person at the University Bookstore and will be charged a $10 late fee.

In-store purchases made at the bookstore after April 22, 2024 are not guaranteed and will be charged the $10 late fee plus an additional expedited shipping fee. All cap and gown orders will be distributed at the graduation Lift-Off event hosted by Alumni Engagement on May 1.

Honor cords based on the academic standing of GPA (cum laude, magna cum laude and summa cum laude) are permitted and distributed at the ceremony to graduates at check-in.

Stoles are permitted for nationally recognized honor societies sanctioned through Student Engagement, Athletics and ROTC branches. These are distributed by your organization's advisor before the ceremony. Please contact your advisor directly for more information.
