Commencement Regalia, Tickets and Diploma Information

1. Commencement Regalia Packages - Cap and Gown Information

The Commencement regalia does not need to be returned; it is for the graduate to keep as a memento of the day. The Alumni Association suggests you keep your regalia for participation in future events.

Please note: If someone other than the graduate will be picking up the Regalia Package, a note specifying the name of the individual who is picking up the package MUST be sent to the graduate’s Program Advisor.

We WILL NOT release the Regalia Package if we do not have this written permission from the graduate.  Also, the graduate can make alternate procurement arrangements through your Program Advisor.

2. Commencement Tickets

Due to fire and safety regulations, only four tickets per graduate are available. They will be given to you when you pick up your regalia. You will need to sign for them to signify that you received them. THERE ARE NO EXTRA TICKETS. Guests will not be permitted in the Gym without a ticket. Do not lose them! A live video feed will be shown in the Sitnik Theatre located in the David and Carol Lackland Center for any guest without a ticket.

Please note:  

  • Children are not allowed on laps and count towards the use of a single ticket per child.
  • No strollers are permitted inside the gym during the ceremony.

3. Diplomas

Diplomas will be mailed to graduates from the Registrar's Office in mid-February.
