Are you graduating this semester?

University Connect & Persist (UCAP) has partnered with Special Events and Alumni Programs to create the UCAP and Gown Program. This program offers graduating undergraduate students the ability to borrow a commencement gown FREE of charge. *Students must still purchase a cap and tassel.

You have accomplished great things and the Commencement Ceremony is a meaningful way to celebrate.

There are a limited number of gowns available; gowns are reserved on a first come/ first served basis. Once you complete the interest form, you will be contacted by UCAP to set up a meeting. To fully reserve your gown, you must attend this meeting.

Please note that this is currently only available to undergraduate students.
