Frequently Asked Questions

I just need a cap/tassel/hood.  How do I order an individual item? Please visit https://commerce.cashnet.com/ohiocapgown, and click on Student Individual Pieces.
Does my order include the tassel and/or hood, or do I have to order those separately? Your package includes a cap, gown, tassel and hood (if earning a master’s degree).  You do not need to order a tassel and/or hood separately.
What if I am earning two degrees and want a tassel for both degrees? (Applies only to undergraduates.) You will need to place a separate order for a second tassel. The cap & gown package includes only one tassel, even if you are earning two degrees; however, be sure to verify the tassel color associated with each degree as some degrees within the same college have the same tassel color.
Why isn’t the charge for my cap & gown order showing up on my e-bill? If you placed your order through our Cashnet site you were instructed to pay with a credit or debit card, so your student account will not be billed.  If you ordered through the spring graduation application your bill should show a total of the $50 graduation fee as well as the package price for the regalia needed for the ceremony.  E-bill’s do not itemize the purchase.
