Caps and Gowns/Senior Outcomes Survey
Graduates are reminded that caps and gowns are required for all participants. Caps and gowns will be available for purchase at the bookstore starting on April 18th and must be picked up prior to Commencement day. There is no need for bachelor's degree recipients to place an order with the bookstore. We will have a variety of sizes available. The cost of regalia for bachelor's degree candidates is $48. Master's degree candidates must also purchase their regalia for a cost of $58.00. If you have questions, please call the bookstore at (617) 333-2322. All regalia must be picked up by Friday, May 19.
All seniors must complete the Outcomes Survey (emailed to students on Monday, April 10) before purchasing their cap and gown. The Survey gathers important information about your plan after graduation. Once completed, you will receive a voucher to pick up your cap and gown at the Commencement Fair on Tuesday, April 18. We encourage ALL STUDENTS to complete the Outcomes Survey before the Commencement Fair since it will not only speed up the process of receiving your cap and gown but will help to prevent long lines at the fair.
