Gowns for Grads Program

We are excited to launch a new program called Gowns for Grads!

The cost of regalia can sometimes deter students from walking at their Commencement ceremony.  If you have a cap and/ or gown taking up space in your closet, you can donate them to the Alumni Association!  We will process requests for regalia items from graduating seniors and provide them with the donated gear.

If you wish to provide a gently-used donation of graduation regalia, please mail the items to:

CSUSM Alumni Association
333 S. Twin Oaks Valley Road
San Marcos, CA  92096

Or, you can drop off the items at our office in Commons 201.

We will also collect regalia items after each of the 2017 Commencement ceremonies at the Alumni Association tent.

Donations are eligible for an in-kind donation receipt that can be used for tax purposes.

If you or your company would like to help us off-set the cost of dry cleaning the donated items, please email us for more information!
