Gowns for Grads Lending Program – University Life

The Gowns for Grads application is now open. We will be accepting applications on a rolling basis through December 7, 2018. Gowns for Grads is a lending program for low-income students or students unable to afford their own regalia for commencement. We lend students regalia and they return it after commencement. If you are working with a student who fits these criteria, please tell them to seek out our program. We have both master’s and bachelor’s gowns available for students this year. Students can apply here: https://ulife.gmu.edu/students/gowns-for-grads-lending-program/.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to myself or [email protected]. Thank you!
