Graduation Information

Congratulations on your big accomplishment! Graduation is such an exciting day for students and their families. We hope that this information will help you prepare to celebrate your achievement.


Commencement Date: 5/19/13

Students need to come into the store to pick up their regalia beginning 4/8/13. We will be handing out regalia from early April right up to graduation day.  The packet contains:

  • Graduation gown
  • Cap and tassel
  • Photo card
  • Notices about the ceremony
  • Four guest admission tickets

The admission tickets will be used only if the ceremony is moved indoors due to inclement weather. If the ceremony is indoors, it will be held at the Alfred University McLane Center.
The Alfred Campus Store will be open on graduation day from 9:00 - 5:00

Regalia Purchase

ALL students expecting to receive regalia will need to have their graduation fee paid in full ($50). Students have had the option to pay this fee when processing their bills while with Alfred State. We will verify if the graduation fee has been paid. If it has not, the fee can be paid at the time the regalia is picked up or shipped. Information we will need include: major, height, and size. Plus sizes are available.

All students graduating from bachelor's programs must pay an additional $30 for the cost of the bachelor hoods.

Regalia Pickup

Alfred students should pick up their regalia at the Alfred Campus Store during regular store hours. Wellsville campus students need to pick up their regalia at the Wellsville Campus Store during regular store hours (after classes have concluded for the semester in Wellsville on May 5, Wellsville students need to pick their regalia up at the Alfred Store).

On-Line Students

Online students may call the store to make arrangements for us to ship their regalia. Please allow enough time for shipping. Shipping charges will apply.

For any questions about graduation, please call the Campus Store (607)587-4020.
