Caps, Gowns, Wristbands

Pick up your cap, gown, tassel and five (5) guest passes May 1-3 from 10 a.m. - 6 p.m. in Room L20B, near the Financial Aid Office on the second floor of Student Services. If you have questions, please contact Student Services at 815-802-8509 or email

To have your gown looking its best for commencement, place it on a hanger to allow the folds to fall out, preferably in a high-humidity area. To press (iron) your gown, turn it inside out and press with a warm-- not hot--iron. Steaming is also an option.


Wristbands are required for all guests in the gymnasium. You will receive five wristbands when you pick up your cap and gown.

Guests who are not seated in the gymnasium may watch the ceremony on a live videocast in the auditorium (Room L110), Iroquois Room (Room D152) or Workforce Development Center Conference Hall (Room D140).
