Creating Equity in Commencement


The Associated Students of Northern Arizona (ASNAU) is the undergraduate student government for Northern Arizona University. ASNAU exists to be the voice for students at the campus, local, state, and national levels, and we believe every NAU student deserves the opportunity to attend commencement regardless of financial need.

Each student has worked too hard—and sacrificed too much—to miss this milestone celebration because they cannot afford a cap and gown.   The Cap and Gown Closet was created to make commencement regalia more accessible for all Lumberjacks. The Closet, located in the ASNAU office, rents caps and gowns to in-need graduating, undergraduate students.

Support the Closet

ASNAU kindly asks for your support of this project by sponsoring a cap, gown, or maintenance and cleaning fees. Your gift today will make commencement equitable and accessible for all Jacks.  

Thank you Lumberjacks for your #AxeofKindness!

Alumni Cap & Gown Donations

Do you have graduation regalia you no longer need?  Donating it to the ASNAU Cap and Gown closet makes it possible for a student in need to walk across the stage at the Skydome to celebrate their hard-earned achievement.   This simple gesture makes a major impact.

Donations are accepted year-round.  Please note that all donated caps and gowns must be from the year 2005 on and navy blue.

There are two convenient ways to donate your regalia:

  1. Drop it off at the ASNAU Office in the University Union (Rm 206) or the North Valley Campus
  2. Mail it to ASNAU P.O Box 6003 Flagstaff, AZ 86001

Thank you for your generosity and for supporting future NAU alumni like you!


The Associated Students of Northern Arizona (ASNAU) is the undergraduate student government for Northern Arizona University. In addition to this closet, ASNAU supports the student experience through various events and efforts including: the annual Homecoming Carnival, student clubs and organizations funding, and donations to Louie's Cupboard, Lumberjack Emergency Assistance Fund (LEAF), free menstrual products in the Union, and Student Legal Counsel.

Alumni Cap & Gown Donation

I am donating my gently used cap and gown but would still like to help cover the dry cleaning fees. #LumberjackForLife

No Sophomore slump here! Gifts at this level support cleaning and maintenance fees associated with the closet.



Graduation is so close, yet so far. A gift a this level will purchase one gown for a deserving Lumberjack.
