Order Cap & Gown

All regalia orders will be sent to the address provided when placing your order.  Caps and tassels are yours to keep!  Gowns and hoods are rental items and should be returned after your ceremony.  Each order will be provided with a return shipping label if needed, or you can return your items directly to the UNF Bookstore.  Graduation announcements, class rings, and diploma frames can also be ordered at the UNF Bookstore or online with Herff Jones

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!

Undergraduate students should wear their tassels on the RIGHT side of their cap.

Graduate students should wear their tassels on the LEFT side of their cap.
