Bond is $100.00 for all casual hires that include a gown. If you hire a hood or hat only the bond is $50.00. Your bond will be fully refunded on return of graduation regalia.  Costs for hire items as below:

There are options to hire or buy during the ordering process and in the shopping cart.  For a full list of items and purchase versus hire costs, please see the information above under Cost to Hire and Cost to Buy.
