Caps and gowns are keepsakes and made of a high-quality material. All undergraduate gowns are purchased, not rented, eliminating the need for separate measuring and pick-up dates and the inconvenience of returns after the commencement ceremony.
All online orders for May commencement must be placed January 16 through March 12, 2017.
If you choose not to order online, please plan to purchase your regalia at the Saint Louis University Barnes & Noble Bookstore graduation fair from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. April 6, 2017 and from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. April 7, 2017.
The graduation fair is the primary time that caps, gowns and tassels are distributed. You can purchase your cap and gown or pick up online orders during this event.
In addition, representatives are available to assist you with announcements, rings, frames and other graduation-related merchandise. Many University departments also have representatives present to answer questions.
If you are unable to attend the graduation fair, please call 314-531-7925 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
You will receive 10 free, non-personalized invitations when you purchase your cap and gown during the graduation fair. Custom personalized announcements may be purchased anytime in the Saint Louis University Barnes & Noble Bookstore, online at www.cbgrad.com or by calling toll-free 800-433-0296.
