Line-up Cards/Cap and Gown Distribution
All graduates must have a line-up card for cap and gown pick-up and for the Commencement ceremony itself.
Line-up cards and caps and gowns will be available in Donnelly Hall on Thursday, May 22, from 4:30 to 7:00 p.m. and Friday, May 23, before the ceremony. Please note regalia is not available earlier than 4:30 p.m. on Thursday. Signs will be posted throughout the building directing you where to go. Students must pick up their line-up card in person and will be required to show photo ID and sign the alcohol policy statement. Line-up cards are required for cap and gown pick up and in order to cross the stage. The Registrar’s office should be contacted immediately if the line-up card is lost.
Caps are provided by the College to all graduates at no cost to the student, and they may be kept as keepsakes. Gowns and hoods are rented by the College for all graduates. There is no cost to the student for gowns and hoods, but they must be returned to the distribution room in Donnelly Hall by 8:00 p.m. after the ceremony, or the student’s account will be charged for replacement of the rental unit ($400 - $700). If students are interested in purchasing gowns or hoods, please see the Registrar’s office for ordering information.
