Order Your Cap and Gown

  • The deadline to order cap and gown was March 16, 2021 at 11:59 p.m. EST. Graduates who missed this deadline have 2 options:
    1. If you plan on attending the in-person ceremony you can pick up your cap and gown on the day of the ceremony. We will have extras available at the graduate check-in area at Hard Rock Stadium. Be sure to arrive 1 hour before the ceremony start time.
    2. Graduates can still order cap and gown on the Herff Jones website. However, graduates who missed the deadline will be responsible for paying the full price of cap and gown, plus shipping. We cannot guarantee that late orders will arrive by the ceremony day.
