Caps, gowns and hoods will be issued in the Seattle University Bookstore. Pre-ordering is not necessary.
Students may pick up Commencement Regalia starting, Wednesday, May 27 thru Friday, June 12.
If a student is unable to pick up caps and gowns, 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 pickup 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.
When you pick up your cap and gown you will receive a 3" x 5" card that bears your name. Bring the card to the Commencement ceremony. It will be used to announce your name as you receive your degree.
If you feel so called, please consider recycling you cap & gown. Together we can reduce the mass production of polyester by reusing gowns.
Donate your gown after the ceremony on Sunday June 15, 2015, look for a container marked "Gown Return" at Key Arena.You can also recycle gowns on campus at the Campus Store, which will be available throughout the summer.
