Attention students and faculty participating in Commencement!
Cap, Gown, and Hood
Each participant must be attired in an academic robe, matching cap, and carrying your hood over your left arm.
A predestinated faculty member will hood you on stage.
Academic attire for graduate students must be purchased through The University Store.
If unable to get on campus, the attire may be shipped for a fee. The attire is yours to keep.
You can phone The University Store for information at (570) 389-4180 or contact the store by e-mail.
The University Store closes at 4:30 PM on Fridays; therefore, academic attire should be purchased in advance.
There will be no extra attire at the ceremony. The robe should be pressed. It is inappropriate to attach flowers, signs or messages on the gown or cap.
The cap should be worn flat on the top of the head, with the top of the cap parallel to the floor. The tassel should hang on the left side of the cap.
