Spring Commencement

Graduates jump in caps and gowns

August Commencement Canceled

Because of the health risks currently associated with large gatherings, SUNY Oneonta will not host any events at which attendance could exceed 25 people through at least Jan. 1, 2021. Also, only internal events — for students and campus employees, but not visitors — will be allowed. Sadly, this means that the May 2020 commencement, which the college had rescheduled for Aug. 29, will not take place then. Nor will the college hold a commencement ceremony this December. If permitted, we look forward to rescheduling these ceremonies for spring 2021.

No. We are planning in-person ceremonies for the May 2020 graduating class, provided we are permitted to do so. The dates and times will be announced on this page.

Cap and gown orders with Oak Hall will be canceled and refunded. Depending on the original date of purchase, you will either receive a credit to the credit card used at purchase or will receive a check in the mail to the billing address. Credit card refunds will be processed the week of July 6.

If you placed your order more than 90 days ago, you will receive a refund via check. Any questions regarding refunds should be directed to: customerservice@oakhalli.com

If you have already received your cap and gown, you may return it unopened within 30 days and receive a refund for the purchase price. All returned items must be unopened and in their original packaging.

If you would still like a cap and gown to take photos or wear at a celebration event once it is planned, you can place a new order here.

You can reach the Red Dragon Bookstore at (607) 436-2357 or collegestore@oneonta.edu

Contact Oak Hall directly with any refund questions customerservice@oakhalli.com
