Regalia Information

Graduate at commencement wearing regalia

Academic regalia are the traditional dress for degree candidates participating in college, school and department convocations, as well as the university-wide commencement ceremony.

For those earning a bachelor’s degree, a black gown and mortarboard are worn. A black tassel with a custom UMCP medallion is attached. A custom UMCP red stole completes the regalia for bachelor’s degree candidates.

Ordering and Purchasing Regalia

On Campus (University Book Center)

Academic regalia is available for purchase from the University Book Center (UBC) beginning November 16. The UBC will continue to provide regalia services up until Spring commencement (May 22, 2023). We suggest purchasing early, as gown sizing and hood colors may be limited as the ceremony date approaches. Along with full regalia packages, the UBC will stock individual pieces, including the tassel, stole, and hood.
