Cap and Gown

Caps and rental gowns, graduation announcements, class rings, and diploma frames can be ordered at the UNF Bookstore or online. Packaged specials are available during the graduation celebration.


The spring graduation celebration will take place at the UNF Bookstore on:


 March 11 from 12 p.m. to 5 p.m. and March 12, 2020, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

The deadline to pre-order your cap and gown online is March 13, 2020. Students can place walk-in orders with the UNF Bookstore until the day before commencement, though exact sizes may not be guaranteed. In addition, exact hood and tassel colors cannot be guaranteed with late orders. Cap and gown orders will be available for pick-up at the UNF Bookstore April 27, 2020 - April 30, 2020. Students who have not picked up their regalia by the date of commencement can pick it up at the UNF Bookstore.


UNF understands that the responsibility for sustainability lies in each and every one of us. Our actions, while small, make up part of the overall footprint left by all beings on this planet. In an effort to decrease that footprint, we are using the Herff Jones ClassRental™ caps and gowns for commencement regalia. These are premium-quality gowns which are cleaned, inspected and packaged after each use. Using rental gowns positively affects eventual landfill usage as well as requiring less material and energy than creating new gowns for each commencement. For more information go to


As a reminder about the RENTAL CAP AND GOWN Program: Return your gown to the UNF Bookstore after the graduation ceremony. Gowns and hoods must be returned on the same day. Boxes will be inside the door for easy drop-off. The cap and tassel is yours to keep!


Contact the UNF Bookstore at (904) 620-2665 or visit the Bookstore Graduation website for more information and to order your cap, rental gown and other items.
