Cap, Gown & Degree Hood (Commencement Regalia)
In the effort to remain green on campus, all University of Lynchburg graduates will be wearing environmentally conscious GreenWeaver® regalia. This line of graduation wear is made of fabric spun from molten plastic pellets produced from 100% post-consumer recycled plastic bottles. Each day in the US more than 60 million plastic water bottles are thrown away. Most end up in landfills or incinerators, and millions litter America’s streets, parks, and waterways. With an average of 23 plastic bottles being used to produce your hood and gown, you are helping to ensure a cleaner, healthier future for our planet.
Order your cap, gown, and degree hood at the Graduate One Stop event (Wednesday, February 12th from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. and 4 p.m. to 6 p.m.) in the Westroom of the Drysdale Student Center, 3rd floor. Emails will be sent out regarding checking your status to graduate and inviting you to this event. Graduation Announcements and University/College diploma frames may be ordered at this event. All orders must be prepaid at this event. Order pickup will be at the Cap’in It Off event on Tuesday, 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. and 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. in the Westroom of the Drysdale Student Center, 3rd floor.
Health Science Graduates in PA, DPT, and DMSc programs are not required to attend the Graduate One Stop or the Cap’in It Off events.

If you plan to borrow or use an existing cap & gown, bring it by the Campus Store to make sure it matches. If the fabric is different, you will need to purchase University of Lynchburg regalia. (Just because it is black, does not mean it matches!) Graduate gowns are different from undergraduate gowns.
University policy dictates that the cap or gown should not be decorated. Individuals assisting with commencement will direct you to the Campus Store to repurchase regalia if your cap or gown is decorated.
