Cap and Gown Orders

Once you have completed your application for graduation, you will receive a letter by email containing information regarding graduation.

It will contain a link to the cap and gown order form that must be completed no later than Friday, Oct. 31. Phone orders are not accepted. Rental cost is included in your graduation fee.

You may pick up your cap and gown at the Student Services Center during finals week: 
Monday - Thursday, Dec. 2 - 11, 8:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. and 8:30 - 11 a.m. on Friday 
or 1 hour before each ceremony at the Student Recreation Center (directly north of Bearcat Arena).
You may have someone other than yourself pick up your order.

You may also contact Annette Hill to arrange to have your regalia sent to either the Kansas City Center or the St. Joseph Center for pickup. 

You may keep your cap, tassel and honor cords (if applicable), but you must return the gown/hood immediately following the ceremony.
