    Cap and Gown

    If you are planning to attend the university commencement ceremony at the Javits Center on May 22 or the Lang recognition ceremony, order your cap and gown from www.herffjones.com/college/graduation by April 15. You can also order graduation announcements through this website.

    This year, your cap and gown package includes a stole of gratitude, which should be worn during the ceremony and then, if you wish, given to someone who has helped you reach your academic goals.

    You will be able to order and pay for your regalia online, and your cap, gown, hood, and stole will be shipped to you at the address you provide.

    It is very important that you review your DegreeWorks record to be sure you are on track to complete your degree requirements, as no refunds for regalia will be issued.
