Crete students pay a $75 graduation fee. This fee is charged to cover the cost of cap and gown and graduation activities. The fee is levied when students achieve senior standing. The fee is waived only upon presentation of an assessment certificate issued by the Academic Affairs Office, for participation in assessment activities developed by the college. Senior Assessment activities occur in September.
CAPS and GOWNS
Cap and gowns may be picked up at the Crete Bookstore. Please contact the bookstore with questions regarding your cap and gown.
The Bookstore has information about purchasing packages for personalized announcements for graduation. This information is also available online and announcements may be purchased at www.cbgrad.com.
