Academic regalia is required for all graduates participating in a Commencement ceremony.

Students will receive written information and instructions on how to order regalia during the spring semester.

Please note: Doctoral graduates will not be given hoods when picking up academic regalia. The hood will be presented on stage at the Doctoral Degree ceremony.
