Caps and gowns (and hoods for master's and doctoral students), also known as regalia, are required to participate in the Undergraduate and Graduate Commencement ceremonies. Regalia is not needed for Baccalaureate.
Students will be ordering commencement regalia through the Josten's website. Students will pick up and pay for ordered regalia at the Grad Fair. The Grad Fair will be held May 6-7th from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. at the Campus Bookstore.
**Students who did not pre-order their regalia will still be able to pick up regalia at the Grad Fair.

Students will pick up and pay for ordered regalia at the Grad Fair. If a student is unable to pick up a pre-ordered cap and gown, he/she may have someone else serve as his/her representative but must provide written permission. These written authorizations will be collected and filed for each transaction. The student's representative will also need to show either an SU ID or other photo ID.
If you are graduating with academic honors, your hood will be issued when you pick up your academic apparel name card at the Seattle University Bookstore.
Master's, educational specialists and doctoral degree candidates wear hoods appropriate to their degrees. The cap, gown, hood, and tassel are yours to keep.
Be sure to pick up the color tassel that corresponds with the school or college granting your degree.
In academic tradition, the student who has not yet earned a degree wears the tassel on the RIGHT side of the mortarboard. After the baccalaureate degrees have been conferred, graduates will be directed to move the tassel to the LEFT.
Master's candidates wear their tassel on the left, to begin with and, therefore, do not move it during the ceremony.
This 3" x 5" card will bear your name and will be used to announce you as you walk across the stage and receive your degree. Details with regards to name card distribution will be available Spring Quarter.
