Cap and Gown Information

One step closer to making it official.

Receiving your cap and gown is an exciting part of reaching this milestone! Before you order cap and gown, there are several steps you need to take to officially apply for graduation.

Receiving Your Cap and Gown

Graduates from the Classes of 2020 & 2021

The period for cap and gown online ordering for campus pickup and home shipping has ended. If you have not yet placed your cap and gown order, email 2020hawk@hartford.edu as soon as possible to ensure that you will have regalia for your Commencement ceremony..

Students who selected campus pickup when placing their regalia orders should plan to pick up their caps and gowns on the third floor of Gengras Student Union on Monday, May 10, from 2 to 7 p.m. and Tuesday, May 11, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. (GSU 331–339). Your student ID will be required, and you are not able to pick up for other graduates.

Those graduates who are having their regalia shipped directly to their home or campus address can track the status of their regalia order. You will need your order confirmation email with your internet reference number. If you are having your regalia shipped to a campus address, you will need to pick it up at the campus post office in Gengras Student Union upon receiving notification that a package has been received.

Undergraduate degree recipients and master's degree recipients will receive custom University of Hartford "keeper" gowns, which do not need to be returned. These gowns with University of Hartford seals embroidered in red are manufactured from recycled plastic bottles. Doctoral candidates will receive custom rental gowns with hood and keeper tam. All graduates will be given a degree-specific color tassel with a University of Hartford "H." Souvenir red-and-white tassels with the 2021 date may be purchased as an option for $8 each. Honor cords may be purchased by eligible graduates only (GPA of 3.25 and above) for $10 each.
