    Provost Mark Ginsberg bumps fists with a graduate at the George Mason University 2021 commencement ceremony.

    Gowns for Grads Program

    Open for Winter ’21 Grads through November 16

    Graduation should be a time of excitement and possibility, not a time to feel burdened by another expense: a $60 cap and gown for graduation.

    To offer some financial relief, Mason has created the Gowns for Grads Program to make regalia available for our students who are unable to purchase regalia on their own.  If you are a first-generation student, low-income, Pell Grant recipient, Stay Mason recipient, or cannot afford regalia right now due to financial difficulties, then this program is for you!

    Apply to graduate via Patriot Web from November 1, 2021 – February 22, 2022

    Graduation is not an automatic process at Mason once you reach the required number of credits – you must apply to graduate or you will not officially have your degree conferred. No degree conferral means no diploma and Mason cannot verify your degree completion to future employers, which could mean missing out on a job offer!

    The good news is that applying to graduate is simple and can be done via Patriot Web until February 22, 2022.
