Cap and Gown Fitting and Distribution

Any student who wishes to participate in the Commencement Ceremony will be required to wear proper regalia. The degree you are earning from VSU will be represented by the academic gown, tassel, and hood.

NEW: Order online at and the deadline is April 1, 2015. No orders will be accepted by mail, phone or fax. Announcement orders will be shipped directly to the address you specify. The delivery date for campus announcement orders is approximately 4 weeks. If you have any questions about online orders call 1-800-837-4235.

For those who forget to order online or decide to participate after the deadline, the VSU Bookstore will be ordering extra caps, gowns, and hoods in various sizes and degrees. These extras will be available beginning April 2, on a first-come, first-serve basis. Extras cannot be held for individuals and sizes are not guaranteed. A $25.00 non-refundable late fee will be charged in addition to the costs.

If by some chance an individual cannot take part in the ceremony after purchasing regalia, they may receive a refund, minus a $10.00 processing fee, if the VSU Bookstore is notified 3 days before Commencement and if the package has not been opened by the customer. After that time no refunds will be issued to the student.
