Graduates are required to wear academic regalia (cap, gown, and hood) to participate in both the University Commencement and the STHM Graduation Ceremonies. Visit the bookstore’s website for ordering information.

The regalia can be shipped to the graduate’s home for a fee, or to the bookstore for in-store pick up free of charge (please check the website for deadline dates). Academic regalia can also be purchased in person at the Main Campus Bookstore. It is important that students arrive on campus having pre-purchased their regalia for graduation day.

Prices for the complete regalia package are as follows and subject to change: Bachelor’s – $73.98 + tax, Master’s – $79.98 + tax, Doctoral – $92.98 + tax.

Please note: The cap, gown (made of 100% post-consumer recycled plastic bottles), and hood are yours to keep.

For more information, please contact the Main Campus Bookstore at 215-204-4505 or 215-204-5578.

Please be sure to purchase the appropriate regalia.  The regalia are specific to the degree the student is receiving, not to the school or college he or she has attended:
