The distribution of caps and gowns is held the Monday and Tuesday before the June commencement ceremony on the Lincoln Park Campus from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. You must pick up your cap and gown on campus prior to commencement. If you will be unable to pick up your cap and gown in person, you may send a designee with a letter indicating your permission. Please include your name and student ID number. Keep in mind that lunch hour is the busiest distribution time.
You will also be able to pick up your allotted tickets at Commencement Kick-Off if you were unable to pick them up at the earlier ticket distribution dates. Visit the
