Commencement

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 are due on March 28, 2021. The order site closes at midnight. 

Please be sure to accurately enter your height and weight as these criteria ensure proper fit. Gowns are sized based on height and weight. While we order extra gowns in the most common sizes, if height and weight are not accurately represented, we may not have an extra gown that meets your specifications.

Please be sure to enter all information correctly before you click on the final submit button. Do not submit more than one order in an attempt to correct an order. The system will arbitrarily accept one order per person per degree type and reject all other requests – it does not attempt to choose the correct order. Contact the Registrar’s Office if you need to make a correction.

Distribution: Regalia will be delivered to Marist College and distributed during the first week of May 2021 by appointment. Details will be sent out in mid-April.  Alternate arrangements will be made for fully virtual students and, also if the college has to pause in early May. More information will follow later in the term.

Please enter your home address in the Shipping Information fields.  If the college cannot distribute regalia in-person on campus, regalia will be shipped to the student’s home address as indicated on the order.

Accessories: Marist does not provide accessories (ropes, cords, stoles, or pins) for graduation honors (cum laude, magna cum laude, summa cum laude).
