Caps & Gowns

All Graduates Participating in Commencement Must Wear a Cap and Gown

All graduates participating in Commencement must wear a cap and gown provided by the college at no charge. The Denison University Bookstore — which can be accesses online at shop.denison.edu — is the official supplier of caps and gowns, custom announcements, class rings, diploma frames and other gift merchandise. As soon as the dates and times when caps and gowns can be ordered are determined, graduating seniors will be notified. Jostens provides the “official” Denison class ring and you can see all of the design options at jostens.com.

Regalia may be picked up at the bookstore in early April. Graduating seniors who are unable to attend Commencement should notify the registrar so their diplomas can be mailed. Please note that seniors who have not completed their degree requirements may not participate in Commencement Exercises.

A letter detailing information about regalia and announcements will be mailed to parents in March.
