In order to participate in ceremonies during Commencement Weekend, you will need University-approved regalia. Barnes & Noble at Boston University is the approved supplier for caps and gowns to graduates. Bachelor’s and master’s candidates purchase their keepsake regalia sets and doctoral candidates rent theirs. All Questrom graduates will receive a Questrom Class of 2024 branded stole at Convocation check-in.

May 6: Campus pickup orders will be available at Barnes & Noble at BU on the second floor.

Honors cords, for eligible students, will be available the first two days of final exams in the Atrium. If you are unable to pick up your cords, you will receive them when you check in at Convocation.
