Stop by the Bookstore and purchase academic regalia. If you cannot purchase the cap, gown, and hood in person, you can prepay by contacting the Bookstore directly and they will ship it to you. Graduate students who have a black cap and gown from their undergraduate commencement are not required to purchase these items. They do need, however, the appropriate hood for their school and a new tassel. (NOTE: Students must have all three items - cap, black gown and appropriate hood - to participate in the Commencement ceremony.) Find more information on Academic Regalia for Graduate students, here.
