Dowdy Students Stores are East Carolina University's official source for your graduation apparel. ECU students are eligible to pick up their graduation cap, gown, and tassel through the Dowdy Student Stores for their graduation ceremony. The costs for the cap, gown, and standard tassel are paid through student tuition. Students are only required to complete and bring the Dowdy Student Stores Commencement Apparel Form to the store to exchange for their cap, gown, and tassel. A form is available below to download and complete ahead of time for your convenience.

The first opportunity for graduates to pick up their caps and gowns is the Graduation Expo held early in each fall and spring semester.
