If you are applying for spring graduation, you will be instructed to order your cap & gown during the application process. If you applied for graduation during a different semester, or if you did not order your cap & gown when you filled out the summer or fall graduation application, you will need to place your order via the “Student Full Packages” web page by clicking (here(opens in a new window)).
Click (here(opens in a new window)) to visit the Cashnet web site and select “Student Individual Pieces". Where you can choose the item or items you need.
The cap and gown fabric and shade of black are specific to OHIO University, so you may not wear regalia from a graduation ceremony at another institution. Also, the gown style is different for each level of degree earned (undergraduate, masters, doctoral), so you will need to order the appropriate cap & gown associated with your degree.
Your package includes a cap, gown, tassel and hood (if earning a graduate-level degree). You do not need to order a tassel and/or hood separately.
You will need to place a separate order for a second tassel. The cap & gown package includes only one tassel, even if you are earning two degrees; however, be sure to verify the tassel color associated with each degree as some degrees within the same college have the same tassel color.
If you placed your order through our Cashnet site you were instructed to pay with a credit or debit card, so your student account will not be billed. If you ordered through the spring graduation application your bill should show a total of the $50 graduation fee as well as the package price for the regalia needed for the ceremony. E- bill’s do not provide an itemized list for the purchase.
Pick-ups will take place in the Nursing Office located in Bennett Hall 270 the week of graduation; you will receive an email when they arrive.
At this time, it is not feasible for us to ship cap & gown orders to their recipients.
Yes – he or she will just need a valid driver’s license or student ID so that our staff can keep track of who picked up your cap & gown.
Unfortunately, we do not issue refunds for cap & gown sales. This is listed in the graduations application and on our website.
To receive honor cords, your accumulative grade point average (GPA) for your bachelor degree as of the previous semesters grades, needs to match the following:
3.500 to 3.749, Cum Laude receives bronze honor cords
3.750 to 3.899, Magna Cum Laude receives silver honor cords
3.900 to 4.00, Summa Cum Laude receives gold honor cords
You will be issued your honor cords when you pick up your cap & gown.
Tradition dictates that because master’s and doctoral graduates wear hoods, they do not receive honor cords.
