    Cap and Gown Orders

    A cap and gown is an important signifier of your transition from student to alum, and we know that many students would like their cap and gown to keep as a memento or pose in for photos. To help you make memories, The New School would like to purchase your cap and gown. To order your cap and gown, visit the Commencement portlet under the Academics tab in MyNewSchool. The cap and gown order portal is open through April 30, but we strongly encourage you to place your order as soon as possible to allow ample time for shipping.
