Order what you need to make Graduation picture perfect.
Caps, gowns, hoods, and tassels can be purchased from ODU's Bookstore during the Countdown to Commencement, which will take place November 3 and 4 from 1 - 6 p.m. for Fall Commencement.
If you can't make those times, you can purchase items during regular Bookstore hours.
The deadline to purchase regalia is November 14. If we need to special order after this date, you will incur a $25 rush shipping fee.
Items are also available individually. Call the Bookstore at (614) 251-4545 for pricing.
The Bookstore accepts cash, check (with valid id), and credit cards. Please bring your RSVP email confirmation as caps and gowns are non-returnable.
We recommend that caps and gowns be steamed or pressed with a cool iron prior to the ceremony.
Please be aware of the colors of your hood and tassel when purchasing them from the bookstore.
Tassels worn during graduation reflects a graduate’s discipline. The graduates degree and the institution that granted it are indicated by color and design.
The hood is lined with the colors of the university (for Ohio Dominican, white and gold) and is faced with a color indicating the discipline of study. Hoods are worn only by those earning a Master's degree.
