Commencement is a formal academic graduation ceremony and it is university policy that all students participating in the ceremony are required to wear academic regalia (black cap and gown). Participating in the ceremony means processing with the graduating class and appearing on the Commencement stage.

Ordering Process

Oak Hall is proud to partner with the University of Puget Sound for your Commencement regalia and announcement needs. All orders submitted to Oak Hall will be shipped directly to students. Gowns will be made from recycled materials and there will be an opportunity to recycle your gown at the end of Commencement.

A link to order your caps and gowns will be emailed to students in the coming weeks.


Honor Cords

Please note that honor cords will be distributed to graduates by individual departments, offices, or programs and not through the Office of Marketing & Communications. Keepsake sashes and tassels can be ordered through Oak Hall.
