Graduation and Commencement Regalia, 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.
