Regalia Guide

It is traditional for graduates, faculty, staff, and distinguished guests to wear academic regalia at convocation ceremonies. Academic regalia has its history in the academic costumes of 14th and 15th century universities in England, particularly Oxford and Cambridge. The gown, hood, and mortarboard are the basic items of academic regalia and originally had practical functions. The hood as specifically created to provide protection from inclement weather. Along with the rest of the costume, it now has a symbolic function, its colours and style representing the type of credential and the institution that awards it.

Graduates from Bachelor's Degree Programs will wear a black gown, a hood which drapes around the shoulders, signifying the degree earned, and a cap with a tassel.

Graduates from Post-Degree Programs will wear a black gown, a stole to signify the Post-Degree Diploma or Certificate earned, and a cap with a tassel.

All other graduates will wear a black gown, a tippet, which also drapes around the shoulders, and a cap with a tassel.
