The supplier for the commencement regalia has changed as of December 2016. 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.
