v Cost: $10 per graduate. No cost for guests
v What to Wear: Most students wear a cap and gown (read message below)
WHAT CAD NEEDS FROM YOU NOW: Your CAP and GOWN Measurements
WHY? When you give CAD this information, you will receive your cap and gown in time for the CAD ceremony! The bookstore is making a special exception for us. However, if you go directly to the bookstore or order your cap and gown without giving this information to CAD, you will NOT receive your cap and gown in time for the CAD ceremony.
- Use a tape measure to determine your height. This is for your gown.
- Use a tape measure to determine your head circumference for your cap
- Email both measurements to the CAD Department office at firstname.lastname@example.org by March 15 @ 4 p.m. CAD will not take orders after that deadline. In other words, you will not have a cap and gown to wear to the CAD ceremony.
- The CAD Department will submit your measurements to the SFSU Bookstore.
- When your cap and gown arrive at the SFSU Bookstore, the CAD Department will send you an email message to that effect.
- Go to the SFSU Bookstore to pick up and pay for your cap and gown ($60 includes gown rental and you keep the cap and tassel).

SF SEED requires students to access advising and encourages tutoring to support them in reaching their educational and professional goals.
California Child Development Grant Program
The California Student Aid Commission (Commission) has announced that the 2013-14 Child Development Grant Program new and renewal applications are now available for downloading from their website.
The Child Development Grant Program is a need-based grant designed to encourage students to enter the field of child care and development in a licensed children’s center. If you’re pursuing a Child Development Permit, plan to work at a licensed children’s center and have financial need, you may be eligible for a Child Development Grant of $1,000 (California Community Colleges) or $2,000 (four-year colleges) a year, up to $6,000. Students who plan to enroll at least half-time in coursework leading to a Child Development Permit as teacher, master teacher, site supervisor or program director, are eligible to apply through the institution they plan to attend. To receive funding, you must be employed full time at a licensed children’s center in California for one year for each year of grant assistance.
There are two types of applications associated with this program. Applicants who are new to the Child Development Grant Program or who were withdrawn from the 2012-2013 program must use the New Application found in the 2013-14 Child Development Grant Nomination & Application Packet. The 2013-14 Child Development Grant Renewal Application is for 2012-13 academic year participants who are continuing with the program to complete their permit requirements.
There is no application fee and you must be a U.S. citizen or eligible non-citizen, California resident. To apply, you must complete a 2013-2014 free application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) at http://www.fafsa.ed.gov/ and submit the Child Development Grant application form, available online: http://www.csac.ca.gov/doc.asp?id=110. Internal deadline to submit all applications to the Department of Child and Adolescent Development is June 3, 2013 and no applications will be accepted after that date.
Participation in May 12, 2013 CAD Recognition Ceremonies will be open to following individuals:
1) September 2012 graduates; 2) January 2013 graduates; and 3) students who have been approved for May 2013 graduation and who have completed ALL courses for the major by the end of Spring 2013. This decision brings us in line with University practice.
