Cap and Gown

Commencement 2020 is postponed. For more information, please read the full announcement from President Stenger.

Cap and Gown Refund Policy

Due to Spring 2020 Commencement ceremonies being postponed, we will offer a refund for unopened cap & gowns. Please do not open your cap & gown if you plan to return it, as we cannot accept open packages for refunds. Please see all refund options below and follow instructions for the situation which applies to you.

If you already purchased your cap and gown for “Bookstore Pickup” and you would like to return your order, follow these instructions prior to May 12:

Prospective graduates who purchased their cap and gown (for Bookstore Pickup), who have not yet received their order, and who would like a refund, should log on to http://www.herffjones.com/collegereturns and follow the instructions for: “Return/Refund (I do not have my cap and gown.)”

If you purchased your cap and gown and have already received them at home, but wish to return your order, follow these instructions prior to May 12:

Prospective graduates who have received their regalia at home, and who want a refund, should log on to http://www.herffjones.com/collegereturns and follow the instructions for “Return/Refund (I have my cap and gown.)" To return your cap and gown, the package must remain unopened, and be returned prior to May 12.

If you already purchased your cap and gown for “Bookstore Pickup” and you still want to receive your order, follow these instructions prior to May 12:

Prospective graduates who purchased their cap and gown for “Bookstore Pickup” and still want to receive them, need to log on to http://www.herffjones.com/HomeDelivery and enter their shipping information to have the package shipped to their home. Herff Jones will ship your cap and gown free of charge since “Bookstore Pickup” is no longer an option. Expect shipment to go out within 28 days of receiving your address information, barring any unforeseen circumstances with state policies.

If you have not purchased your cap and gown and you would still like to order, follow these instructions prior to April 30:

Prospective graduates who want to purchase a cap and gown can still do so through April 30, by visiting http://colleges.herffjones.com/college/binghamton/.  Currently, all cap and gown orders will be shipped to your home and shipping fees will apply. If you prefer to wait until a new Commencement date has been set, the option to purchase will also be available at a later date.
