Formal academic regalia is required for faculty participating in the commencement ceremonies. Please wear medallions and keys that show election to honor societies. 

Doctoral candidates do NOT need to rent or order custom regalia.  PHD and EDD gowns will be distributed at the Popp Martin Student Union Barnes & Noble Bookstore.

If faculty members would like to rent regalia for the December 2017 commencement ceremonies, please visit and submit your rental order by Monday, November 13.  If you would like to custom order regalia, please contact Linda Burke at 7-7072 or email

For additional details including rental fees, please see the Faculty Regalia Order Page and the Cap and Gown FAQs or contact Linda Burke at
