Distribution Week

Pickup and returns

  • If you have already ordered your cap and gown, you will not have to pick them up on campus. Our academic apparel partner, Herff Jones, will ship your cap and gown directly to your home address. Please follow this link to provide your home shipping information: www.herffjones.com/HomeDelivery.
  • If you have ordered your cap and gown but know that you will not be able to participate in a rescheduled Commencement, you may still want your cap and gown for your own photos with family and friends. Your shipment will include a return shipping label, which you can use to return the gown after your celebration. Please follow this link to provide your home shipping information: www.herffjones.com/HomeDelivery.
  • You can also change your order so that it does not include a gown, or cancel your entire order, if you choose. Instructions for changing or cancelling your order are available at this link: www.herffjones.com/collegereturns. Refunds are available up until your previously scheduled Commencement date of May 8 (for graduate students) or May 9 (for undergraduate students).
  • If you haven’t ordered your cap and gown but were planning to do so, online orders will continue through April 15, with no shipping or late fees imposed.

Rent caps and gowns

Online orders for Commencement are open now. You can find the order link here.

Last-minute pickup

Caps and gowns also will be distributed in the robing and lineup area on the day of each ceremony. However, picking up apparel on the day of your ceremony should be a last resort. Time will be short, supplies will be limited, and lines could potentially be long.

Rental policy

Cap and gown orders are available only for the closest upcoming ceremony. Students intending to graduate in the spring may not order apparel in the fall. Any orders placed in the fall will not be carried over to the spring, and refunds will not be given. Likewise, December grads may not order caps and gowns in the spring.
