Regalia and Graduation Items

Graduate Regalia

Graduates who intend to march in the University’s Commencement exercises in the morning and/or in the afternoon ceremony at HSPH are required to wear academic regalia: a cap, gown and hood.

This page will be updated closer to the date with information on renting or buying a cap, gown, and hood.

Shoes and other articles of visible apparel worn by graduates should be of dark colors that harmonize with the academic costume.

Nothing else should be worn on the academic gown.

The Commencement ceremony has great significance as a celebration of your academic achievement and membership of the graduating class; we encourage you to wear clothing or other items that celebrate your heritage and identity at the Commencement Celebration on Wednesday evening.

Faculty Regalia

Even if you have ordered regalia from the Coop in the past, as the Coop does not retain these records, you will need to provide the following information: Your full name (spelling your last name), your telephone number, your highest degree and the school you received it from, your heighthead circumference and weight.
Be sure to mention that you are HSPH faculty, as rental costs will be paid for by the Office of Faculty Affairs.
