COMMENCEMENT ATTIRE - CAPS AND GOWNS
The first opportunity to purchase your cap and gown and receive 6 commencement tickets was during our Grad Finale on April 8. If you could not make it to the Grad Finale, you may purchase your cap & gown at our Campus Center location or purchase online. Caps and gowns will be available for sale online from April 28-May 11. They will also be available for purchase at our Campus CEnter store from May 5-17. Academic regalia is an integral part of the graduation ceremony. The different colors and style all denote the achievements of the wearers. These traditions date back to the middle ages. Since graduation is the most important of SUNY Oswego's academic ceremonies, it is vital that all candidates for graduation are appropriately attired. A large number of caps and gowns in various sizes will be available for purchase. Undergraduate and master degree candidates do not need to place a special order for their cap and gown.
To avoid overcrowding at the commencement ceremony, there will be a limit of 6 guest tickets for graduating candidates. Anyone without a ticket will not be allowed into the commencement ceremonies. Seating is on a first come basis. Guests should arrive early to ensure parking and seating. Persons with disabilities: Graduates, family members or guests who anticipate needing special assistance should contact Disability Services (315) 312-3358 prior to Friday, May 16. Family members and guests who are disabled should report to the University Police officer directing traffic at the handicap accessible drop-off point on the west side of the Campus Center. Contact the usher at the door about special seating. Those persons who will need this special assistance should arrive at least 45 minutes prior to the ceremony.
Commencement is a time for family, friends, faculty and staff to take pride in graduates' accomplishments and congratulate them on a job well done. The ceremony symbolizes the culmination of many years of hard work. Wearing the traditional academic gown and mortar board is required for participation in Commencement. The appropriate attire to wear with a cap and gown is a dress, skirt or slacks, and dark shoes. We ask your help in making the ceremony a pleasant experience for all by taking into consideration adornments such as corsages, jewelry and purses detract from the formality of the ceremony. Also a reminder - campus policy prohibits alcohol at commencement.
We will have numerous opportunities during the Spring 2014 semester for you to browse or purchase your class ring. A representative from Jostens will visit our store, giving you a chance to browse, ask questions, and order your class ring.
