Caps and Gowns

Graduates must pick up academic regalia the week of Commencement. Academic regalia will be available for pick-up on campus in classroom 502 on the following dates at the times indicated. Please bring your student ID for identification.

  • Tuesday, May 19, 10 a.m.–2 p.m.
  • Wednesday, May 20, 1 p.m.–7 p.m.
  • Thursday, May 21, 10 a.m.–2 p.m.

Regalia will be individually packaged with the student’s name affixed to the packaging. If a student is unable to get to the scheduled regalia distribution, another student may pick up regalia for that graduate but must bring the fellow graduate’s student ID or a copy of the receipt that was e-mailed from Build a Grad ( at the time of registration.

Following Commencement, University Cap & Gown representatives will be in the library to collect the academic regalia from graduates.  Regalia must be returned by 3 p.m.

Please note that all members of the Class of 2015 will be required to complete a graduate information card in order to pick up their cap and gown on the dates above.  For your convenience, an electronic version of the information card will be e-mailed to graduates before the pick-up dates above. The American Bar Association requires that all law schools collect employment data and future contact information of graduates.
