These gowns will be student-quality gowns. If you’d like to purchase fine quality multi-use regalia please reach out to capsandgowns@byu.edu, but please note the fine quality regalia will not arrive in time for the 2024 Commencement.

Students

  • Grad Fair is a one-stop shop for graduation ceremony preparation at the Hinckley Center. It occurs about nine weeks before April graduation. Our cap and gown provider (Jostens) co-hosts Grad Fair to assist students with ordering cap and gowns, rings, announcements, stoles, diploma frames, and other accessories.

  • Parking is not available anywhere at the Hinckley Center. Students with a parking pass can park permitted lots. Non-students can park in visitors parking available by the MOA and the Wilkinson Student Center.

  • Undergrad: You need a cap, gown, and tassel. Many students also have a stole, but that is not necessary to walk in graduation.

    Masters and PhD: You need a cap, gown, tassel, and hood. Many students also have a stole, but that is not necessary to walk in graduation.

  • Credit or debit card only. In-person payments by cash, Apple Pay, tap-to-pay, and Venmo are not accepted.

  • If you want to avoid long lines at Grad Fair, come the first day or in the morning hours.

  • All caps are one-size-fits-all. Gowns are based on height and weight. If you purchase in person our vendor can help you pick the right size. If you purchase online it will direct you to fill in your height and weight before you purchase.

  • Tassel colors are dependent on what degree you are getting. See the chart below for more details.

    UndergraduateWhite Tassel
    MastersRoyal Blue Tassel
    PhDGold Tassel
  • Yes, you can purchase the items separately. For example, you can purchase just the cap or just the tassel.

  • Yes, anyone can purchase your cap and gown for you. Make sure they have your height, weight, and degree type. They must be able to pay in person, as advanced payment isn't available.

  • We are unable to take any phone orders. Please order online by March 14 or in-person at Last Chance the week of graduation at the Hinckley Center.

  • Online ordering for regalia is now closed. Please come to Last Chance and purchase in-person, the week of commencement in the Hinckley Center. Please note the only payment type available is credit or debit card. No cash, Apple Pay, tap-to-pay, nor Venmo are accepted.

  • You can purchase thank you notes, rings, and diploma frames at Grad Fair or online from Jostens.

  • To maintain the dignity of the graduation services, graduates are requested not to alter or embellish the cap (mortarboard) or gown. Stoles of Gratitude or honors regalia are appropriate accessories to the basic cap and gown.

  • A stole is an optional accessory worn by the graduate during the commencement ceremony that is embroidered with the name of your college. These were previously known as stoles of gratitude. After commencement, the graduate presents the stole of gratitude to someone who provided them with help or support, such as parents, relatives, or mentors. The graduate removes the stole from his/her neck and places it around the neck of the recipient. More than one stole may be worn during commencement, symbolizing that the student was helped by multiple people.

  • Yes, our vendor will be on campus for Grad Fair and again the week of commencement.

  • Reach out to enrollment services for assistance.
