About your Regalia


At CCNY...

  • Graduate students wear hoods colored according to their degree.
  • Undergraduate students do not wear hoods.
  • Caps have tassels in the school colors.
  • The cap and gown are yours to keep.


Items Price
Bachelor Student Keeper Cap, Gown and Tassel $30.00
Master Student Keeper Cap, Gown, Tassel and Hood $56.00
Grad Stoles for CWE $27.00

Keep in Mind:
Your cap should be centered on your head with the mortarboard (the top) flat, not tilted. Caps tend to slip; hairpins will help. The cap and gown are yours to keep.
