Ordering commencement regalia
Graduates who attend the ceremony are required to wear the custom University of Louisville academic regalia (cap and gown) sold by Jostens. UofL stoles and other items may also be ordered.
All orders will ship to the address indicated on your order as soon as it is produced. To guarantee delivery in time for the ceremony, you must order before the November 10th deadline. Purchasing all items in one transaction is advised to avoid multiple shipping fees. Please contact the faculty member(s) who will hood you and ensure they are able to attend the ceremony and that they have apparel. If they do not own their apparel, they will need to use the same link to order rental apparel.
When submitting your cap and gown order, you will select “Doctorate Tam (One Size), Gown, Hood, Tassel with School Custom Charm.”
