Purchasing regalia  
To participate in a commencement ceremony, a cap and gown are required. DePaul will let graduates know when they can begin purchasing regalia orders through Herff Jones. Bachelor's degree regalia includes a cap, gown, tassel and red stole. Master's and doctoral degree regalia includes a cap, gown, tassel and hood. 
The link to order regalia and the deadline will be shared during the winter quarter in Newsline, via email and on the commencement website.

What's next?
As commencement approaches, graduating students should be on the lookout for more important information. We will share details about tickets, how to apply to serve as a ceremony's student speaker and how to order regalia in the coming months via email, in Newsline, on the commencement website and on social media.

In the meantime, if you have any questions, please reach out to your college's commencement coordinator (located at the bottom of the page) or email

*Participating in the commencement ceremony is optional and does not equate to degree completion. It is a student's responsibility to review their Degree Progress Report to ensure they are on track to complete the requirements and verify their completion term. Students may apply for degree conferral in Campus Connect; please be aware that submitting an online application does not guarantee a degree will be granted from DePaul University. Additionally, regardless of participation at commencement, students will not receive a diploma until all outstanding financial obligations have been fulfilled. Students should contact their Academic Advisors and DePaul Central wi​th questions.
