    Cap and Gown

    If you are planning to attend the university commencement ceremony in the Arthur Ashe Stadium, at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center, on May 19 and/or the Lang recognition ceremony, you can order your cap and gown through the “Graduation” channel on MyNewSchool by April 14, 2017. The channel will be available to fall and spring graduates beginning March 20, 2017. The channel is located under “Academics” and will be visible to all identified graduation petitioners. If you do not see this portal on your MyNewSchool page and believe you are graduating, please contact your academic advisor.

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

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

    If you have any questions regarding caps and gowns, please email commencement@newschool.edu.

    Greening Commencement

    The New School's commitment to environmental responsibility extends to Commencement. At Commencement, all students will wear regalia made from 100 percent post-consumer recycled plastic bottles! Fewer plastic bottles will be choking our landfills because an average of 23 plastic bottles was used to manufacture the cap and gown of every New School student walking at Commencement. Part of the university's effort to remain green, the line of graduation wear — called GreenWeaver — is made of fabric spun from molten plastic pellets. With some 60 million plastic bottles going into U.S. landfills every day, The New School is helping to turn trash into keepsakes.
