Cap and Gown Price

SUNY Oswego does not charge a mandatory graduation fee. In many schools, this would be added to each student’s last tuition bill regardless of whether the student attended the ceremony.

Instead, the cost of certain items that are critical to staging the ceremonies is included in the price of your cap and gown. Some examples of these expenses include:

  • the reception after the ceremony
  • programs
  • diploma covers
  • flowers 

SUNY Oswego takes pride in providing a pleasant opportunity for graduates and their families to celebrate graduates’ achievements with faculty members and university staff.
