Ordering Your Cap and Gown 

Your cap and gown do not need to be returned after Commencement. They are yours to keep as a memento of this celebration of your achievement.

For students who have not yet received their cap and gown, the University is working to fulfill any outstanding or unfilled requests. Please fill out the form below to alert us to your request.

Orders will be filled from available stock in the order received; we cannot guarantee that all orders will be filled.
The last shipment will be May 31st, 2021 — be sure to place your order before this date! 

Congratulations on your graduation! 

As it is a virtual ceremony this year, all graduates are invited to virtually participate.  However, students will not be able to receive cap and gown, diplomas, any program certificates or transcripts until the financial hold is removed.  Please contact Student Accounts office at or by phone 630-829-6503.  Additional information on student accounts may also be found on the website
