Academic regalia

If you are participating in the academic procession, please arrive about an hour before the start of the ceremony to allow time for gowning.

If you own your academic regalia, bring it to the gowning room and someone will assist you with pinning on your hood. For faculty who do not own their regalia, black gowns and TRU hoods will be available on a first-come, first-served basis.

Arrive at least one hour before the ceremony begins. A marshal will arrange the processional lineup.

To obtain regalia from your alma mater, you may be able to purchase or rent from the bookstore of your graduating university. Or, from Gaspard — 1-800-380-8214. Allow at least six weeks if you are purchasing regalia.
