Academic Regalia

Caps and Gowns

Click here to reserve your cap & gown.

You may pick up your rental gown and souvenir cap on Friday, April 27, 2018 in the Malibu Bookstore in the Tyler Campus Center between the hours of 9AM and 4PM.

If you are unable to come at this time, you may arrange for a friend to pick up your cap and gown for you. Your friend will need to know your height and degree and will need to bring your Pepperdine photo identification card. 

Please wear appropriate attire for the commencement ceremony. At the end of the ceremony, return your gowns at the cap and gown return tent located by the first aid tent near the entrance to the field.

Get measured for your cap and gown at Grad Fest 2018!

Honor Cords (undergraduates only)

If you graduate with honors, you will receive your honor cords when you check in on Saturday morning. These honor cords are the only items that may be worn on your regalia. Cum laude honors recognize those who achieve a 3.5 grade point average in their entire undergraduate career. Magna cum laude honors recognize those who achieve a 3.7 grade point average. Summa cum laude honors recognize those who achieve a 3.9 grade point average. It is in the tradition of Seaver College that because masters graduates wear hoods, they do not receive honor cords.
