How do I order my cap and gown?

Regalia (cap, gown, hood, etc.) is ordered through the UMKC Bookstore.

Graduation fairs are held each semester for students to order commencement-related items such as diploma frames, graduation announcements, jewelry, etc. The bookstore will update its website frequently, so check back often.

Can I still participate in commencement if…

…I am not finished with all of my classes?
Yes. You must be within six hours of having your degree requirements completed.

You will need to fill out your application for graduation form for the semester in which you will finish your degree (not participate in the ceremony).

Please write on your application for graduation that you plan to “Walk in May” or “Walk in December” so we know you plan to participate in the ceremony even though you will not be finished with your program until the following semester.

Questions? Contact the Bloch School Student Services Office.

…I missed the application deadline?
