Cap and Gown Information Photo Header

All graduates will have the opportunity to obtain their official regalia. Cap and Gown information varies based on student type (main campus and distance education/extension). Please see below for detailed instructions for obtaining UNCW regalia.

Main Campus Students


Main campus students pay the commencement fee which covers the cost of regalia. All main campus students will receive their bachelors or masters cap, gown, hood (if applicable) and tassel at no cost. For the fall 2020 semester, all regalia will be shipped directly to graduates’ homes once an order is placed. August and December graduates will need to place an order through the Herff Jones ordering website (beginning October 5) in order to receive their regalia.
