126th Fall Commencement

Academic Regalia

Academic regalia are worn by faculty members participating in Commencement ceremonies.

Faculty Regalia Loan Program

The University Co-op provides 65 sets of black doctor's regalia to faculty who may not own regalia so they may participate in Commencement activities. The regalia are provided at no cost. Please contact your college or school regalia representative to sign up for the program.

The regalia "package" consists of a black doctor's gown and mortar board (no hood). The Co-op does not have doctoral hoods available to loan. The faculty member can wear his or her own hood, borrow a hood or rent a hood from the Co-op.
