Commencement Regalia

Group of Hancock Graduates

Caps, Gowns, and Tassels

Students are responsible for obtaining their own caps and gowns.  Caps and gowns are required for commencement participation. They will be on sale beginning the third week of May up through the day of commencement at the Allan Hancock College bookstore. Caps, gowns, and tassels are all sold together or individually (price list below).

The Admissions and Records office will provide the bookstore with the names of students who have earned a gold tassel (3.5 GPA or above) on Thursday, May 28, 2020.

Gown sizes are based on height and weight and come in regular, X-large and XX-large and they are yours to keep after graduation. Due to Covid-19, graduation regalia will not be returnable.

Students may also call the bookstore at (805)922-2391 to order regalia and pay by phone. A shipping charge will be added to orders placed over the phone.
