The cap and gown vendor will be on campus as follows
Date 1 – Wednesday, May 25, 2022, rom 4 to 7 p.m.
Date 2 – Friday, May 27, 2022, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.

How are caps and gowns sold?
Caps and gowns are sold by height (feet and inches).  For example, you can buy a cap and gown that fits a person with a height between 5’ 3” and 5’ 4”.  The vendor will have cap and gown packages (cap, gown, tassel and hood) for sale (about $60, cash or credit card accepted).  The vendor will also be selling a white stole of gratitude.  The stole of gratitude is not part of the basic graduation package; it is optional.
What happens if I work or have another commitment on those dates?
If you are not available to buy your package in person, you can send a friend or relative to buy it for you.  The person will need the money to pay for it (about $60) and your height (example: 5’ 6”).  If you are also buying the stole of gratitude (the white stole), the cost will be around $100.
