Cap and Gown

Based on the uncertainty surrounding the timing of the state‚Äôs reopening guidelines and limitations around large gatherings, the University will not be able to effectively plan for an August commencement ceremony for our May 2020 graduates. Therefore, we are moving forward to determine whether an in-person ceremony that will comply with state guidelines can occur in December. We expect to finalize plans by the end of September.

Caps and Gowns are available for online order through Oak Hall until June 15. Please use your UNC Charlotte email address to place your order. If you are graduating with Latin Honors (Cum Laude, Magna Cum Laude, Summa Cum Laude) you may purchase your cords through Oak Hall.

There is no additional cost for your cap and gown (and hood, if applicable).  Gowns are sized by height so there is no need for special measuring; they tend to run short so if you prefer a longer look, select a gown that is an inch or two longer than your actual height. Caps are one size fits all.

Master's candidates, watch this video to see how to adjust your hood.

Doctoral candidates, you may order your regalia online through Oak Hall. Some doctoral candidates who will need regalia in their professional careers may opt to purchase custom gowns, hoods, and tams. If you would like to order custom regalia and have any questions, please contact Cheri Griffith with Barnes and Noble at
