Grad Fest

We hold a Grad Fest in April for graduating students in the undergrad program.  At that time, they can pick up their cap, gown and tassel, look at class rings, diploma frames, have a photo taken in a cap and gown, find out about the class gift, and other things.  To pick up their cap and gown, they must have fulfilled all the requirements for graduation.  A list of students who are eligible for graduation is provided to us by the Registrar's Office.  This list is updated regularly.  If your student is not on the list, we have a sheet with information as a kind of checklist to go through to confirm they are able to walk at graduation.  They must wait for our information to be updated before they can get their cap and gown. Your student's ID is required to pick up items.

Grad Fest is not the only time to pick up cap and gown.  They can do this through 4pm on the last day of finals, which is the day before graduation.

Masters and PhD candidates can pick up their graduation garb starting approximately two weeks before graduation.  Please make sure you have turned in your information to your program coordinator so that we will have a packet ready for you.  Your garb will be available at the campus you specified.  You must be on the list provided to us to pick up your cap and gown.  If not, you will need to talk with your program coordinator.  ID is required to pick up garb.
