All students participating in commencement ceremonies on campus must wear a cap and gown to participate. Caps and gowns for Bachelors, Masters, and PhD students can be purchased from the University Store beginning on March 22nd up until Commencement on May 19th. Students' first chance to purchase regalia is at our annual Commencement Fair in March.


Purchase a Cap & Gown
Cap and Gowns are available to purchase online and in-store leading up to Commencement. We do not sell caps & gowns outside of the March-May period. If you need a cap and gown outside of this period, please visit our Custom Cap & Gown Page.
Commencement Fair
Commencement Fair is a 2 day event held on March 20th and 21st in the UC. In addition to purchasing caps and gowns, students can enter to win prizes, meet with diploma frame and class ring vendors, and talk to staff from the Registrar's Office and Alumni Relations.

*We recommend picking up your cap & gown at the University Store to avoid shipping charges.

Custom Regalia
Some PhD students prefer to purchase custom regalia. We recommend this option for those who plan to attend numerous ceremonies that require academic regalia. If you'd like to order custom regalia, please visit our Custom Regalia page. Please note, we require a 4-7 week lead time for custom orders.
