Academic regalia

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

Faculty members who would like to rent regalia for the December 2019 commencement ceremonies may place their orders at Faculty Regalia Order Page. The deadline to submit your rental order is on or before, Wednesday, November 27.

If faculty members would like to custom order regalia, please contact Linda Burke at 704-687-7072 or via email at Custom regalia orders need to be placed on or before Friday, November 8 and will receive a 10% discount.

Regalia for doctoral candidates will be distributed at the Popp Martin Student Union Barnes & Noble Bookstore at no cost to the graduate; you do not need to rent regalia. You may pick up your regalia beginning November 6 at the Commencement Fair. The deadline to pick up your regalia is Monday, December 2.  Some doctoral candidates who will need regalia on a regular basis in their professional career may opt to purchase custom gowns, hoods, and tams. If so, please contact Linda Burke at or at 704-687-7072.
