Bookstore hours are:
When ordering your cap and gown, you need to provide your weight and height, and the degree you will be receiving. You will be measured for your cap by the assistant.
You do not have to return your cap and gown. You have purchased them and they are yours to keep.
You must have an appropriate cap and gown in order to participate (walk) in Commencement.
You may want to lightly iron your gown or at least hang it out before coming to the ceremony. Gowns are made of special fabric so use caution when ironing.
Be careful what you wear under your gown, in the type of high intensity lighting used to highlight the commencement stage, they become semi-transparent.
