If you applied to graduate through the Office of Student Records by March 15, your name will appear in the Commencement Program. This was the deadline for the program to go to print.
Caps, Gowns and Tassels
Commencement materials are available in the College of DuPage Bookstore beginning Monday, April 11. Graduates are encouraged to purchase their materials as soon as possible. If you plan to participate in the Commencement ceremony, you must wear the appropriate hunter green cap and gown. In 2010, we changed to a new shade of green so you will not be able to use previous years’ regalia.
