After commencement please return all rental regalia (including cap, gown, tassel, and hood) to the Supply Department cashier counter located just to the right of the Bookstore’s main entrance. Please confirm with the attendant that all items have been returned in full and that there are no issues. You should also receive an email confirmation of the return.
