The beginnings of academic dress in United States predate its founding, when in the colonial era the first colleges were established in North America. This timeline is a collection of dates and facts identifying the earliest use of cap and gown, and early departures from its English antecedents (before 1895) and from the Intercollegiate Code of Academic Costume (after 1895).
