Cap and Gown

You may pick up your cap and gown (and hood if Master's or Doctoral candidate) at the Barnes and Noble bookstore located in the Popp Martin Student Union beginning with the first day of the Commencement Fair. The deadline to pick up your cap and gown is Monday, December 2.

After the December 2 deadline, sizes are not guaranteed.

For undergraduates, if your cumulative grade point average has earned you Graduation with Distinction (Summa Cum Laude, Magna Cum Laude, Cum Laude) you may purchase the appropriate honor cord at the bookstore. Please note: Final determination of graduation with honors is made upon completion of the student's final term.  Therefore, the honor may change based on the final semester grades.

Please bring your UNC Charlotte student ID card when picking up your cap and gown.  If you do not have one please bring a photo ID, along with your 800#.
