Congratulations, graduates!

 Commencement Regalia

If you ordered online, your cap and gown should be arriving at your home (or wherever you had it shipped) Thursday, May 13.

If you haven’t received your gown by the end of the day on Thursday, May 13 or still need to order one, you can visit any one of the bookstores on North, Central or South Campus to pick one up. Please note the bookstore hours listed below. Refunds will be issued if you have to purchase two gowns.

We will have a very limited number of gowns available for purchase at NRG Stadium for students whose regalia was not delivered in time for commencement.
