Cap & Gown Orders!

  • Please ​order your cap and gown by Wednesday, March 21, 2018.
  • Graduating students must place their orders by the deadline in order to participate in commencement and to be guaranteed guest tickets. 
  • Please note: 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. Pleasantville students should use “Pleasantville Campus” and New York students should use “New York Campus.” This will ensure your regalia are delivered to the correct campus for distribution. 
The “Order Your Graduation Package!” choice on the site includes packages containing a cap and gown and additional products such as announcements, thank you notes, souvenir tassels, and stoles of gratitude. If all you’d like to order is just a cap & gown, you can do this by clicking on the green "Cap & Gown" tab at the top of the page.
