Cap, Gown, and Diploma


How to purchase a cap, gown, and diploma for graduation

Fee and Materials

Beginning with the 2018–2019 academic year, there is no longer a separate program completion fee when you finish your program. Instead, you will be charged a $6 "matriculation fee" at the beginning of each semester (included in your tuition charges), which will cover your cap, gown, tassel, and diploma cover.

A Bookstore associate can help you find the correct gown size by height. Most sizes are always in stock.  

If you do not participate in the Commencement Ceremony, you may request that your diploma be mailed to you. Please email registrar@abtech.edu and include your full name, student ID number, and mailing address.

For detailed information about the Commencement Ceremony, visit abtech.edu/graduation.
