Cap and Gown Order Instructions

Marist provides commemorative cap & gown sets (regalia) to all 2021 degree candidates at no charge. Students may keep the cap, gown, and hood.

Orders were due on March 28, 2021. The order site closed at midnight on March 28.

Caps and Gowns were distributed during the period of April 27-May 8. Students who missed this distribution can pick up their regalia on the day of their ceremony. Regalia will be distributed beginning at 8 a.m. at the Dyson Café – using the door that opens to the outdoors. Please maintain social distancing (6 ft) while in line.

Any regalia not picked up by the end of Commencement Weekend will be shipped to the student at the address provided on the order.

Students Studying Remotely or Not Currently On Campus AND Will Be Participating in the Commencement Ceremony:

You may pick up on campus on the day of your ceremony. Regalia cannot be shipped to students who are planning to participate in the ceremony because the regalia will not be delivered before May 28.

Tracking campus visitors is a NYS requirement. Therefore, if are not cleared to come to campus, you must request clearance as a guest to come to campus to pick up your regalia at your scheduled time slot. The Guest Survey can be found at: https://www.marist.edu/coronavirus-guest-survey. Please complete the Guest Survey on the day before or the day of your planned pick-up.  You cannot complete the Guest Survey in advance.

If you are “cleared” for that day, then come to campus and pick up – be prepared to show proof of clearance.

Students in Quarantine/Isolation:

If you are in quarantine/isolation during this time, please contact Cheryl.Lown@Marist.edu to make alternate pick-up arrangements.

Regalia Not Picked Up By May 31:

Any regalia remaining at the completion of the semester (May 31, 2021), will be mailed to the address you provided on your order.
