Borrow Academic Dress from Grenfell Campus for Photos

Grenfell Campus is pleased to offer an academic dress borrowing service for photography outside of the regular Spring Convocation date (held in May of each year). This service is intended for photography purposes only, is available year-round except during convocation, and is free of charge. The service includes one gown, one hood (based on the degree you are graduating with) and one mortarboard cap. We only have hoods for degrees that are obtained from Grenfell Campus. If you require a hood for a degree obtained at St. John’s campus, please contact the Bookstore in St. John’s at 709-864-8084 to reserve your academic dress.

All academic dress is due back on the date that you indicate on the form below and in the same condition as it was received. Note: if you happen to get something on the hood (makeup, dirt, etc.), please do not wash the hood as they are meant to be dry-clean only. If you have any questions, please contact Debbie Giles at
