Academic Attire  (e.g., Caps, Tassels, and Gowns):

 

  • Graduates are required to wear a master's gown, a master's hood, a black cap, and a black tassel. Students are encouraged to wear their adornments (cords, medallions, etc.) 
  • Graduates who are a member of the United States Armed Forces, are welcome to wear uniforms. Graduates who need to wear specific attire for religious or cultural purposes (e.g., hijab, etc.) are welcome to do so. 
  • Your cap should be worn level, not tilted. Your gown should hang freely from the shoulders. Appropriate business clothing should be worn under your gown. 
  • Academic attire can be purchased from the University Book Store in the Memorial Union or via their website (http://www.isubookstore.com/MerchList.aspx?ID=8392)
    • Delivery options included shipping or pick-up in store.
    • The deadlines for shipping are as follows:
      • December 13th for standard shipping.
      • December 14th for 2nd day air.
      • December 15th for next day air.
    • For graduates who would like their academic attire shipped to an international address, the University Book Store strongly encourages picking up at the store, instead, as there are currently significant delays when it comes to international shipping.
