Graduation To-Do List
Graduating students are required to complete all to-do list items by the stated deadlines.
Regalia (cap & gown) is required, and must be worn by graduating students at both the Recognition and Commencement ceremonies.
Regalia will be available to purchase at the Columbia University Bookstore, located in Lerner Hall at 114th Street on Broadway. We encourage students to purchase their regalia early in order to avoid long lines closer to graduation. Additional information regarding regalia can be found the Graduation To-Do List.
Class of 2020:
- You can certainly order your cap & gown online via your Graduation To-Do List and keep until the rescheduled in-person ceremonies - this is completely up to you! You will be able to order again in Spring of 2021.
Insider Tip: The gown will be very wrinkled when removed from the tight packaging. To look your best at Recognition, we recommend that students take the gown out of the package and hang it up as soon as possible, then use a steamer at home to take out the wrinkles or send the gown to a dry cleaner to be pressed.
