Graduation regalia rentals including the cap, gown, hood, and tassel will be provided by SPP for all students participating in commencement ceremonies. Regalia will be available for pick up a few days prior to the commencement ceremony in the Office of Student Services. On the day of the ceremony, students should plan to arrive no later than 9:30 am to allow for robing, group photo, individual photos, and lineup. Tassels and caps may be kept by the student. The gown and hood must be returned at the conclusion of the ceremony.
Students who do not participate in commencement ceremonies may rent a cap and gown directly from Herff Jones to have them home shipped. Due to a limited supply of gowns, delayed shipping, and COVID-19 cleaning protocols, regalia rentals may take several weeks to arrive.
Student loan borrowers are required to complete Federal Student Loan Exit Counseling and/or Federal Perkins Loan Exit Counseling before regalia can be released.
Graduates should wear appropriate attire for this formal occasion. Phi Alpha Alpha honor society medals are pre-approved regalia adornments.
Graduates shall leave purses, briefcases, and non-essential items at home or with guests. There will be no place for gradates to leave any personal belongings during the ceremony.
