Cap & Gown Orders!

Students can now order their caps and gowns for Commencement 2016! Please visit the link below to order your cap and gown by Sunday, March 20, 2016. Graduating students must place their orders by the deadline in order to participate in commencement and to be guaranteed guest tickets. Please note that the gown and hood are rentals and must be returned after the commencement ceremony. However, your cap and tassel are yours to keep as a memento of your special day!

When ordering your cap and gown, be sure to click on the appropriate link based on the campus at which you are registered. Westchester students should use “Pace University Westchester Campus Students” and New York students should use “Pace University New York Campus Students.” This will ensure your regalia are delivered to the correct campus for distribution.

 
You may also order invitations, class rings, and other commencement-related products at the same link.
 
You are guaranteed 4 guest tickets for the ceremony if you order your regalia online by the deadline. You must order attire to receive tickets. Due to high commencement participation numbers and limited seating, we will not have any information on whether or not we are able to accommodate additional ticket requests until after the cap and gown distribution dates.
