The Bond is $100.00 for all casual hires that include a gown. If you hire a hood or hat only the bond is $50.00. Your bond will be fully refunded on return of graduation regalia.  Costs for hire items as below:

Combining hire and purchase of regalia

You can choose to hire some and purchase to keep some of your regalia order.  A number of recent graduates have chosen to hire the gown, and buy the trencher and hood to keep.  You can also purchase a full set of regalia; the choice is yours. 

There are options to hire or buy during the ordering process and in the shopping cart.  For a full list of items and purchase versus hire costs, please see the information above under Cost to Hire and Cost to Buy.

If you wish to purchase a degree hood or diploma stole, please notify us as soon as possible.  A $50.00 deposit is required before these items will be ordered for you.

If you also choose to hire some items, the hire items will need to be returned at the times stated on your invoice to avoid late fee penalties.
