Commencement - Cap and Gown

2022 Commencement Service
Saturday, May 14th

Ordering Your Cap and Gown 

Students graduating from traditional undergraduate programs will supply cap and gown information when they complete their online graduation applications. Students will pick up caps and gowns in the mailroom during the first week of May. The mailroom staff will send a reminder email.

If you have not yet placed an order for your cap and gown, contact Shared Services as soon as possible at [email protected]

Pick up your cap and gown in the GU Mailroom: 
All traditional students residing on campus must pick up their own caps and gowns. The mailroom staff will notify you when your cap and gown are ready for pick up. The mailroom is open until 4 p.m. before the Baccalaureate ceremony to accommodate December graduates picking up their caps and gowns for spring ceremonies. For graduates who cannot pick up gowns at these times, please email the commencement staff and make special arrangements to pick up your cap and gown:
