Academic regalia (cap and gown) is required of all graduates participating in Baccalaureate Service, Class Day and Commencement.
For bachelor's degree candidates, it is not necessary to pre-order academic regalia.
The Columbia University Bookstore holds an annual Grad Fair in the basement of Lerner Hall. Students should make arrangements to purchase a cap and gown at the Grad Fair. Bookstore staff will be on-hand to assist with measurements and sizing.
Students who were unable to attend the Grad Fair may purchase a cap and gown by visiting the Bookstore during regular business hours.
If you have questions regarding the purchasing of academic regalia, please contact the Columbia University Bookstore directly by calling 212-854-4131.
