Caps & Gowns
Caps and Gowns can be purchased at the bookstore. The bookstore hosts a Grad Fair in March, but caps and gowns can be purchased anytime after that up until the week of graduation. Call the bookstore at 412-578-6164 for hours and information about caps and gowns.
Undergraduates who are to graduate with Honors will be mailed a letter indicating which honors designation they earned (cum laude, magna cum laude, summa cum laude). Honors cords can be picked up from the bookstore. They will also be available at the check-in table the day of Commencement. Your name must be on the honors list in order to obtain an honors cord. There is no charge for the honors cord.
Honors are for undergraduates only. Please read Honors and Awards for Graduating Seniors on page 19 of the undergraduate catalog for information on the requirements. If you did not receive a letter by April 19, and you feel you have earned honors, please contact the Commencement information line at 412-578-8821 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
