It is time to order your cap and gown
.  If you have a cap and gown from a previous NEIT Commencement ceremony, you must order a new one this year. You may place your cap and gown order by going online to the Grad Form. Scroll to the Cap and Gown section and click the Graduation Form link. Please contact Kayla Olsen, (401) 739-5000 or 1-800-736-7744 ext. 3642, if you have any questions or if you are unable to submit your order online.

Note:  There is no cost to you for your cap and gown, and hood for B.S. and M.S. grads.  Also, you may keep your cap and gown (and hood) as a keepsake.

Plan to pick up your cap and gown during the NEIT Grad Fair, which will be held on Wednesday, May 1st, 11 a.m. -7 p.m., in the Student Lounge on the East Greenwich Campus.  If you cannot attend the Grad Fair, you may also pick up your cap and gown on Saturday, May 4th, from noon - 3 p.m. in the East Greenwich Student Lounge.  A friend or family member may pick up your regalia if you are unable to attend either of the distribution dates.
