  • Please place orders prior to the deadline; the cap and gown fee is included in the graduation fee. 
  • Women who plan to wear heels with the cap and gown should add two (2) inches to their height measurement. 
  • Please include your exact weight for the best fitting of the cap and gown. 
  • Generic graduation announcements are available in the Shaw University Bookstore. All caps and gowns will be shipped to the Shaw University Bookstore (in the Willie E. Gary Student Center). Students who have completed the Graduation Clearance Process may pick up the cap and gown from the Bookstore. For bookstore information, please call (919) 828-1730.  

The university is looking into being able to mail your cap, gown, tassel and hood to you directly following clearance. We will follow up with confirmation soon.
