Caps, Gowns, And Tassels

All graduates participating in the Commencement ceremony are required to wear a blue cap and gown with a blue and gold tassel.

You MUST pre-order your regalia package (cap, gown, and tassel) online at http://collegegrad.herffjones.com/ between January 23, 2017 and March 12, 2017.  Payment is due at time of pickup ($40 tax included). 

Pre-ordered regalia will be available for pick-up at the Campus Bookstore – Textbook Window beginning April 24, 2017 through May 5, 2017.  Graduates who are not on campus during the Spring semester may arrange for regalia to be mailed to them; email bookstore@canton.edu with your name, student ID#, shipping address, and contact number.

When you pickup your regalia, you will receive a Student Commencement Packet which will include rehearsal instructions, pertinent information and your guest tickets. You MUST pick up your regalia/Student Commencement Packet (or make alternate arrangements with the Bookstore) by 4:00 p.m. on May 5, 2017 OR YOU WILL FORFEIT YOUR COMMENCEMENT TICKETS.

*** If you already have regalia and do not need to order, then you MUST notify the Campus Bookstore (bookstore@canton.edu) by March 12, 2017 so that a Student Commencement Packet will be reserved for you.

Bachelor degree hoods ($30 tax included) will be available to purchase at the Bookstore when you pick up your regalia. 

Honor graduates with a GPA of 3.25 or higher are eligible to wear a gold tassel.  Upon request and verification, honor students may purchase a gold tassel ($5 tax included) at the Bookstore. 

Members of the SUNY Canton honor societies are eligible and encouraged to wear their designated honor stole or cord. Members must contact their Honor Society Advisor by early March to order an honor stole or cord.
