Order Academic Garb

If you would like to order academic garb, use the Academic Garb Order Form

Ordering academic garb is optional and is not required for Commencement video participation. 

The academic garb package for College for Women and College for Adults graduates includes a cap, gown, and tassel relevant to your degree and program of study. For Graduate College graduates, the academic garb package includes a cap, gown, hood and tassel relevant to your degree and program of study. 

  • Only students cleared for graduation (meaning you met your degree requirements) can order academic garb.
  • If your student ID does not work with the academic garb form, please check with the Registrar’s office at 651-690-6531 or registrar@stkate.edu to confirm you have been cleared to graduate.
  • Academic garb orders are done through an external vendor, Balfour. Therefore, academic garb orders will take roughly 10-15 business days to fulfill.
  • Please note, there are no returns on garb orders. All sales are final.
