Everyone who participates in Adelphi’s Commencement Exercises must wear a cap and gown. Please note that we have changed our academic attire and all degree candidates must be wearing Adelphi’s new brown academic robes. Bring your robe, cap and tassel, and your hood (no hoods for Associates degree candidates), along with the yellow card provided by Chappell Studios that you received with your cap and gown, to the Commencement ceremony on May 21.
You have the option of picking up your Commencement Apparel package and Commencement tickets at your off-campus center or having them shipped to your home or workplace. Students requesting to have their items shipped must e-mail their requests to the bookstore by Monday, May 11th. Students picking up their academic regalia at the Manhattan Center MUST place a pre-order with the bookstore. Please click here (PDF 44 KB) for your cap and gown form. All shipments will have a flat rate shipping and handling fee of $6.95. We hope this option will be helpful for students with busy work/school schedules. The Bookstore e-mail address is firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note: Commencement tickets for off-campus students will only be packaged with a cap & gown order.
The Commencement Apparel package includes 1 Cap, 1 Gown, 1 complimentary brown and gold Tassel with a ‘2009’ charm, and 1 Hood (there is no hood for Associates degrees). You may order your attire individually, but the package is the better value. If you wish to know individual pricing, please contact the Bookstore.
