How to Acquire Attire
UW Oshkosh has been recognized as a national leader in campus sustainability. We offer our graduates the options of purchasing environmentally friendly undergraduate attire or reusing attire from friends and family.
There are four ways to purchase academic attire:
- At Countdown to Commencement
- At our bookstore, University Books and More
- Online through the bookstore
- By telephone: (920) 424-2381
Make your check payable to University Books & More. Credit cards are also accepted. Upon receipt of your gown, remove it from the packaging and hang it up. To help remove wrinkles, hang the gown in a steamy bathroom or use a steamer. Be careful to not place the steamer too close to the gown fabric and DO NOT use an iron. Should the gown fabric get too close to a hot steamer or iron, the fabric will be damaged. If you receive the wrong color tassel or hood for your degree, you may exchange it at the bookstore or on commencement day in the lower level of Kolf, one-half hour before the ceremony.
Graduates may also choose to reuse attire from family and friends who have graduated from UW Oshkosh. All borrowed attire must be approved through University Books and More. Caps, hoods and tassels may be purchased separately. Find out more.
