Academic Attire

Start the celebration on Tuesday, February 25, 2020 by attending Grad Central-Greensburg!

Enjoy a Mardi Gras atmosphere, complete with beads, carnival masks, music, and cake. Purchase your regalia that day and be entered into drawings for free regalia, a free diploma frame, a free class ring, a free Pitt t-shirt, and even tickets to the Family Appreciation Dinner!


Caps and Gowns

All graduates planning to march in the ceremony are required to wear caps and gowns (regalia). The robe color is the "new" bold Pitt blue, with a blue and gold tassel.  Beginning on February 25, 2020, students can visit the Campus Store during regular business hours to purchase their cap and gown. The Campus Store is able to ship regalia for graduates that are no longer on campus.  Please call (724) 836-9928 to place a phone order.

Bachelor (Cap, Gown, and Tassel)

$35.00 (includes tax)
Tassel Only $6.00 (includes tax)

The tassel should be worn on the RIGHT side of the cap and remain on that side throughout the entire ceremony. Nothing should be worn on the regalia other than official accessories (pins, medallions, stoles).


Honor Cords

Honor cords for cum laude, magna cum laude, and summa cum laude will be distributed during the commencement ceremony. April 2020 graduates will receive a letter from Academic Affairs in February regarding your honors while students who have already completed the degree requirements should have already received their final transcript with honors listed.

Please be sure to contact Academic Affairs if you have any questions or if the honors are not what you expected; otherwise, your honors may not be listed correctly in the program or announced at the ceremony.  Honor cords will be awarded to recipients during the ceremony and we will practice this at rehearsal. Be sure to pay attention at rehearsal, as this will be the last chance to verify that you are receiving the correct honors.


Honor Societies and Athletes

If you are a member of an academic honor society, contact the faculty or staff advisor of that honor society for information regarding honor medallions, society cords, or pins.  Student Athletes who meet official requirements will have the opportunity to wear stoles to recognize their participation in campus sports teams.
