The Care Center and Cal Poly Pomona Enterprises have partnered to launch the Cap & Gown Program, which aims to help students who may face financial barriers to participating in commencement.
Students who are graduating with either a bachelor’s or master’s degree can apply for a standard regalia package (which includes a cap, gown, tassel with year, and grad sash with year). Once approved, they can pick up the regalia in the Bronco Bookstore.
Weston Prisbrey, interim assistant dean for student health and wellbeing at the Care Center, shared his enthusiasm for the program.
“The Cap & Gown Program will provide students with a cap and gown who may otherwise be unable to participate in commencement due to the financial burden of purchasing regalia,” Prisbrey said. “We are thrilled to offer this opportunity to students, so they can fully celebrate this exciting milestone in their lives.”
