Commencement Regalia

Cap and Gown for Students

To attend commencement ceremonies, it is required that you wear the appropriate academic regalia. Students, faculty and staff are responsible for obtaining their own regalia and announcements. Regalia consists of a gown, cap and hood, which reflect the degree being conferred.

*Students walking in Philadelphia can pick up regalia directly from the store as late as the morning of walking. Make sure that you have ordered your regalia for the Philadelphia ceremony to insure that you receive your tickets for that ceremony, which are distributed with the regalia.
