Graduation FAQ

Questions about what you need for graduation? We can help. See below for answers to your questions regarding announcements, regalia, class rings, diploma frames and more.

Yes, the Grad Kick Off scheduled for April 1-2 has been canceled given the limited operations on-campus from March 23-April 13, including the closure of the Triton Store. This event typically provides students with their first opportunity to order graduation regalia.   
Regalia may be ordered through the Triton Store until the Friday before commencement. Limited gown sizes and accessories are available at the ceremony for emergency situations.
Rental regalia is only available to doctoral candidates.
No, there is a difference between the master’s and bachelor’s gowns. The master’s gown has a different sleeve. You will not be allowed to participate in the commencement ceremony if you are not wearing the regalia appropriate to your degree.
Graduation caps are one-size-fits-most, but we do have a limited supply of larger sizes available.
Yes, you can student charge your regalia.
Any student may order graduation regalia through our online form. Please note that, given uncertainties due to COVID-19, the Triton Store is accepting online regalia orders, but is holding on fulfilling orders for the time being. By doing so, students will have an opportunity to cancel orders should the university determine it necessary to cancel, postpone or modify spring commencement ceremonies. It is important to note that no such decision has been made at this time.
No, regalia can be picked up in the UMSL Triton Store during regular store hours.
