Academic regalia (cap and gown) is required of all graduates participating in the Baccalaureate Service, Class Day, and Commencement.
For bachelor's degree candidates, it is not necessary to pre-order academic regalia. The Columbia University bookstore will hold its annual Grad Fair in the spring of 2014. Students should make arrangements to purchase a cap and gown at the Grad Fair. Bookstore staff will be on-hand to assist with measurements and sizing.
Students who were unable to attend the Grad Fair may purchase a cap and gown by visiting the bookstore during regular business hours.
The cost for a cap, gown, and tassle for a bachelor's degree candidate is TBD. Graduates may keep their academic regalia as a souvenir.
If you have questions regarding the purchasing of academic regalia, please contact the Columbia University bookstore directly by calling 212-854-4131.
