Gown Rental for Photographs

The bookstore offers a gown rental service for students who wish to have photographs taken outside of regular convocation dates. This service is intended for photography purposes only, and is available year-round except during convocation.

We strongly suggest that you call the bookstore and confirm regalia availability for your required dates before you make an appointment with your photographer. We have a limited supply of hoods and gowns, so we might not be able to fill your request for a particular day unless you check with us beforehand.

The rental package includes one gown and one hood; mortarboard caps are available for sale separately if desired.

The rental fees are as follows:

  • One Day Rental - $10.00 plus $50.00 Deposit
  • One Week Rental - $40.00 plus $50.00 Deposit

We require a $50.00 deposit with each rental (this is subject to change depending on the duration of the rental); this will be refunded upon return of the rental package in its original condition. Payment may be made by Visa, Mastercard, debit card or cash and refunds will only be issued to the same method of payment.

To reserve your gown, please call (709) 864-7440 or print and fax/email the gown rental form to (709) 864-2405.
