Cap & Gown FAQs

Q

When will students receive their cap and gown?

A

Q

I forgot to place an order for a cap and gown. What do we do now?

A

We will have a cap and gown for every graduate, even if you didn't order one.

Q

When do graduates wear their cap and gown?

A

Gowns are worn at Baccalaureate and Graduation ceremonies.

Caps are worn only for the Graduation ceremony.

Q

Can students decorate the graduation cap?

A

No, students are not allowed to decorate their caps.

Q

Can the gowns be ironed?

A

Please do try to remove wrinkles from the gown by taking it out of the bag and hanging it up as soon as you get it. Gowns can be ironed on a low/warm heat setting. Do not use a hot iron. Placing another piece of fabric (like a pillow case) on top of the gown will help protect it. Please do not dry clean.

Q

Do we keep the gowns?

A

Yes, they are yours to keep.
