Academic regalia should be worn at most college, school and departmental convocation ceremonies. For those who may need to acquire regalia, several options exist.
You may purchase or rent regalia through the University Co-op or from the institution from which you received your degree. For those purchasing from the University-Co-op, the following deadlines apply.

Faculty Regalia Loan Program
The University Co-op has established a loan program for faculty who may not own regalia so that they may participate in Commencement activities. The regalia are provided at no cost. Please contact your college or school regalia representative to sign up for the program.
The regalia package consists of a black doctor's gown and mortarboard (no hood). The Co-op does not have doctoral hoods available to loan. The faculty member can wear his or her own hood, borrow a hood, rent a hood from the Co-op, or go without one.
