Graduation can be a very exciting time for students. However, for some, the cost of buying a graduation gown is an expense that tempers the enthusiasm of their academic achievement. The NOVA Foundation and Division of Student Services have partnered to create the “Cap & Gown Gift Program” to support students in need with free rental of graduation regalia (caps and gowns).
The cost to sponsor a student’s cap and gown is $55.00 and can be done through the NOVA Foundation website.
Select “Commencement Cap and Gown” as your designation when making your donation.
If you know of a student who may be experiencing hardship and who could benefit from the program, please refer the student to your campus Dean of Students office. The Dean’s office will be distributing tickets redeemable for the use of a cap and gown at the Spring 2019 NOVA Graduation ceremony on Friday, May 17.
This program was created to help alleviate some of the hardships of graduation expenses. With your help, we can ensure that students who are in need experience the memorable graduation day they worked hard to earn. Thank you for your help and consideration!
