  • When and where do I need to return my regalia?

    The deadline to return all rental regalia for Fall Graduation is December 22. Returns after this date are subject to a late fee.

    After commencement please return all rental regalia (including cap, gown, tassel, and hood) to the Supply Department cashier counter located just to the right of the Bookstore’s main entrance. Please confirm with the attendant that all items have been returned in full and that there are no issues. You should also receive an email confirmation of the return.

    Note to departments returning regalia in bulk: Regalia for faculty MUST be complete, individually packaged, and labeled. Failure to do so will significantly delay the return process and could result in issues crediting faculty correctly. Please have department representatives stay throughout the return process to ensure that all faculty regalia is matched correctly.
