Cap & Gown

Note:  Your cap and gown will be ordered automatically from your degree application unless you did not provide your height and weight.  In that case, you will be asked to provide that information at Commencement Countdown. 

There is no fee for your cap and gown. Graduating seniors have already provided height/weight to the Registrar for purposes of cap/gown ordering. Please keep your cap/gown and tassel as a memento of your graduation day.  

By early March, graduating seniors receive a packet of information from Jostens via campus mail. This includes order forms for graduation announcements and other memorabilia, including class rings and diploma frames. If you want to order memorabilia on line, do so at the Jostens web page or by phone, 800-854-7464.

Remember: The cap and gown belong to you. Your graduation gown is made from natural wood sourced exclusively from renewable, managed forests. The fabric is proven to completely decompose in soil within less than a year. The Eco-Zip coil zipper tab and teeth are made from 100% recycled PET. Jostens will donate $1 for each Lewis & Clark gown to an environmental sustainability project. For further information, consult the Jostens web site above. Please do not return your cap/gown.
