Regalia

Based on the uncertainty surrounding the timing of the state‚Äôs reopening guidelines and limitations around large gatherings, the University will not be able to effectively plan for an August commencement ceremony for our May 2020 graduates. Therefore, we are moving forward to determine whether an in-person ceremony that will comply with state guidelines can occur in December. We expect to finalize plans by the end of September.

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.
