In order to purchase your regalia you must first apply for degree conferral. Please check the steps on how to Apply to Graduate. The deadline to purchase regalia is April 9, 2020. Click here ​to purchase your cap and gown, announcements or other accessories.

The cost for regalia is:

  • Graduate students $101 plus tax
  • Doctoral students $125 plus tax
After the ceremony, students may keep the regalia. Our vendor manufactures the regalia from environmentally friendly fabric. Unlike most universities, DePaul does not charge students a graduation fee.  

If you have questions or concerns about regalia affordability, or the cost of the regalia may prevent you from participating in the commencement ceremony, please contact the Office of Academic Events at . All inquiries will be kept confidential. 

At Commencement Kickoff you will receive important information needed for commencement day. Many university partners will be available to ensure you have everything you need for your ceremony, including Alumni Relations, Career Services and representatives from each college. GradImages will be on-site during Kickoff to allow graduates to take pictures in their cap and gown. Most importantly this is when students will need to pick-up their commencement tickets and cap and gown.

If you have any issues with your cap and gown after pick up, please contact the DePaul Bookstore at (312) 362-8792 or  .

If you are not able to make it to the Commencement Kick Off Event yourself, it is critical that you provide a friend or family member with your student ID number so they can pick up all of your items on your behalf. Please note that lunchtime is busiest, so plan accordingly.
