Graduation Regalia

Graduation regalia include the cap and gown, as well as other distinguishing hoods, stoles, and cords that denote traditions of academic achievement. Only those who have achieved an academic honor or are members of an academic honors society are entitled to wear the special regalia.

For those graduates who miss the deadline for ordering graduation regalia, the bookstore at the Dahlonega and Gainesville locations will have what you need for purchase two weeks prior to graduation. Gowns, caps, tassels and hoods (masters, specialist and honor) will be available to purchase separately. Students are strongly encouraged to purchase the regalia online since buying open stock will cost more.

Academic regalia will be sold as open stock in the bookstore at a higher price if not ordered by the  bookstore's published deadline. Open stock will be available in the store two weeks before graduation.
