About the Program

The GPSA Cap & Gown Program is administered on a first-come-first-served basis provided that the requested size and materials are available. Priority will be given to students with financial need. Incomplete applications cannot be considered. Completed applications will receive a confirmation email upon submission.



Enrolled graduate students may request commencement regalia from the GPSA any time of the year. For peak times (October/November and March/April), the student must complete this application request form before their order can be fulfilled. Upon submission, a response from
the GPSA can be expected by October 4 or April 4 (fall/spring).

The GPSA will notify the student if all items are available and when their order is ready for pick up. Pick-up is typically the week before commencement. Commencement regalia will be picked up at the Graduate Student Commons (LLB 2141) on the second floor of Lied Library. The student will need to confirm their order's accuracy upon pick up. Please note, we will provide the closest requested gown size available.

Purchase UNLV Commencement Regalia

UNLV Bookstore

Students may purchase their academic regalia outright through the UNLV Bookstore. The Bookstore requires orders to be placed at least 8 weeks in advance for custom robes.

Herff Jones

UNLV is contracted with Herff Jones for our regalia. To order online and ship to home please visit the Herff Jones online order webpage.


Graduation regalia will be provided to students by the GPSA for a flat deposit of $20 (CASH ONLY), due upon pick up of the materials. Upon return of the regalia, $10 will be returned to the student (this cost covers dry cleaning and operational expenses of the Cap & Gown
Program). Regalia must be returned no later than two weeks from the pick-up date.
