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 accessed online at — is the official supplier of caps and gowns, diploma frames and other gift merchandise. Graduating seniors are directly notified of the dates of the Bookstore Grad Fair.

Caps and gowns may be picked up at the Bookstore Mon.-Fri. between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m.

Students receiving Latin honors will wear honors tassels, which can be picked up at the Registrar’s Office between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. on Friday, May 10.

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.
