Purchase cap and gown
Visit the Barnes and Noble Bookstore to purchase a cap and gown.
NOTE: The bookstore will be open during normal business hours during the week of May
14-18. If you are unable to make it into the bookstore, please call them at 631-249-3048.
The bookstore will be open prior to the morning ceremony and prior to the afternoon
ceremony, but will certainly be crowded. (Students must wear caps and gowns to participate in the graduation ceremony.) The bookstore will use its facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/FSCbooks to announce the arrival of the caps and gowns.
The first days for commencement ticket distribution will be at the Senior Commencement
Fair on May 2-3, 2018. This will take place in the Campus Center Ballroom from 10am-2pm, and 3pm-7pm on both days. If you cannot attend these days to pick up your four tickets, you may email firstname.lastname@example.org starting May 8 for updated information. All eligible graduates will be able to pick
up 4 guest tickets at this time. Dependent on the number of participating graduates, a limited number
of extra tickets MAY be available during the week of May 14. All tickets are free.
Late Commencement tickets
Unable to obtain tickets on the above dates? If so, during the week of May 7-11 you
can obtain four (4) tickets during the hours of 10AM-4PM in Laffin 314. If you are unable to obtain tickets during these time periods, please email email@example.com and arrangements will be made for alternate pickup. Please note that Nold Hall has
a finite number of seats and as such we cannot honor large requests for tickets. Be
advised there will be a live stream of the ceremony on the day of graduation. The
link will be made available just prior to the ceremony on the Farmingdale homepage.
Please be aware that the graduation will be taking place inside the gymnasium in Nold
Hall. You will be walking up the platform stairs to shake the President's hand and
receive your diploma cover. You should dress accordingly. High heels are not recommended.
To maintain the dignity of the ceremony, we ask all students to dress appropriately.
Cap and Gown
It is very important that when you pick up your cap and gown, you open the package
and check to see that you have everything that you are supposed to have: cap, gown,
black tassel (Latin Honors students will receive a gold tassel during check-in at
graduation), hood (Bachelor degree) or bib (Associate degree). Also, you should try
on the cap and gown to make sure it fits. This will help avoid problems on the day
You MUST attend the pre-ceremony lineup and instructions.
