Step 1: Apply for Graduation
Step 2: Order Cap and Gown
Order your regalia
Undergraduate students: If you wish to purchase a cap and gown, you can still do so online through the CU Book Store. Order by May 3 to ensure delivery before the May 16, 2020, ceremony. Please note that you are not required to purchase a cap and gown for the virtual ceremony.
Master’s and doctoral students: If you wish to purchase or rent full regalia and/or a master's or doctoral hood, you can still do so online through the Jostens website. We recommend ordering as soon as possible, as it can take 3–4 weeks to process orders. Expedited shipping is available at an additional cost.
Step 3: Review the Pre-graduation Checklist
Review the pre-graduation checklist to make sure you have completed all of the requirements to be elibible to graduate.
