Cap & Gown Information for the Class of 2023
Bring on the Pomp and Circumstance!
Congratulations on your upcoming graduation from The College of St. Scholastica! We are happy and excited for you and wish you well in your future endeavors.
We are ready to assist you with your cap & gown and/or answer any related questions, so please read this message and then send your questions to email@example.com.
You may have seen messages with several deadlines and wondered why they keep updating, so I hope this helps clear up any confusion!
The original deadline of March 4th was for orders that would be prepared for a bulk delivery from Herff Jones, the supplier of our caps and gowns. They needed enough time to process these orders and ship them all at once to the Saints Shop. These orders are expected to arrive on or around April 4th, however, this date is subject to change. Emails will be sent when the orders are ready to be picked up.
The next deadline is April 13th at 10:59 pm CST, and orders should be placed at herff.ly/css. These orders will ship to your home or designated shipping address for a shipping cost of $13.95 and should arrive within 3 weeks of the date that you order. Please order at your earliest convenience to avoid unnecessary stress as the commencement date draws near!
If you miss the April 13th deadline, you may place your order at shop.css.edu. beginning on April 14th. Please understand that we carry limited sizes and quantities in the store and may have to supply you with the closest size available. If you want your cap & gown shipped to you, you must place your order by 11:59 pm on May 3rd. If you'd like to pick up your order, you can order online or stop in the Saints Shop from April 14 - the beginning of the ceremony.
We will be open for pick-ups and purchases on Saturday, May 13th at 9:00 am.
We are here to help you and feel confident that we will be able to supply you with what you need after April 13th, but please try to meet that deadline and order from herff.ly/css if at all possible.
