What type of regalia do I need to particpate?

As an undergrad there are three things you need to remember: cap, gown, and tassel! Graduate students with a Masters or Doctorate will need a bit more. Ethnic regalia is welcomed at commencement!

Do you have questions about what regalia is or what you should be wearing? Check out our 2017 Commencement Style Guide.
