Purchase Your Cap and Gown
many years, DePaul has been one of the few universities in the country that
paid the costs of students’ commencement regalia. Beginning this year, students will purchase their own regalia for the ceremonies.
The cost for regalia is:
After the ceremony, students may keep the regalia. The
university has negotiated prices that are in line with, or below, what students
at DePaul’s peer institutions pay. Our vendor manufactures the regalia from
environmentally friendly fabric. Unlike most universities, DePaul does not
charge students a graduation fee.
- Undergraduate students $67 plus tax
- Graduate students $101 plus tax
- Doctoral students $125 plus tax
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 email@example.com to
discuss your situation and
learn about regalia assistance. All inquiries will be kept confidential.
In order to purchase your Cap and Gown you must apply for degree conferral first. Please check the steps on how to Apply to Graduate. The deadline to purchase your cap and gown is April 24, 2019.

This will include representatives from each College, Alumni Relations and Career Services. GradImages will be on site during Kick Off to allow graduates to take pictures in their cap and gown.
