Ordering Cap and Gown After the Deadlines

We strongly recommend all students order their cap and gown before the deadlines above. If students do not order their cap and gown by the deadlines, they will need to purchase their cap and gown at the ceremony (40 minutes prior to commencement in the graduate area).

Late orders incur a $25 fee. Only cash is accepted when purchasing cap and gowns at the commencement ceremony. For all questions related to cap and gown please contact Herff Jones directly at 1-800-837-4235.
