Cap and Gown
All bachelor's, master's, and education specialist's degree candidates who plan to participate in their graduation ceremony must wear academic apparel that is purchased through the Grad Fair or Loyola Bookstore. You will not be able to purchase your cap and gown the day of your ceremony.
The Grad Fair, held in early April, is an event sponsored by the Loyola Bookstore that serves as an opportunity for students to purchase their academic apparel, have portraits taken and place orders for other graduation-related items (diploma frames, class rings, announcements).
All doctoral candidates who plan to participate in their Commencement ceremony must wear appropriate academic apparel that is rented online from Oak Hall Cap & Gown.
You may also purchase custom Loyola doctoral gowns online through Oak Hall Cap & Gown.
Doctoral candidates will be able to pick up your gowns 90 minutes before your ceremony on the second floor of the Damen Student Center in Schmidt Hall.
