Caps, Gowns, and Tassels
Students are responsible for obtaining their own caps and gowns. Caps and gowns are required for commencement participation. They will be on sale beginning March 15, 2023 up through the day of commencement at the Allan Hancock College Bookstore. Caps, gowns, and tassels are all sold together or individually (price list below).
Gown sizes are based on height and weight and come in regular, X-large and XX-large and they are yours to keep after graduation. Due to COVID-19, graduation regalia will not be returnable.
Students who are transferring can receive a transfer medallion by submitting the Transfer Recognition Award Form to the University Transfer Center by May 5, 2023 or stop by the UTC in A-205.

What is the difference between the black and gold tassels?
The standard tassel is the black tassel. The gold tassels are reserved for students with a 3.50 G.P.A or higher as indicated by the Admissions and Records honor list. Gold tassels will be available to purchase from the bookstore starting April 24, 2023.
How do I care for my gown?
The gowns should not be washed, ironed, or dry-cleaned as they are mainly for one-time use. Upon first removal from wrapping, the gown can be hung up during a shower allowing the steam to lightly remove most wrinkles.
