Faculty may order apparel for Commencement and all school, college and departmental events through our RSVP/regalia order form. (The form is currently closed but will open soon.)
Rental regalia consists of a black sussex gown, appropriate tam or mortarboard, and degree appropriate hood with your school colors. The one exception is UW PhDs who will be supplied with UW regalia. Individual items (e.g. tam only, hood only) may be ordered separately. Orders placed by May 8 are guaranteed to have appropriate hood colors. Any orders received after May 8 may be supplied with a generic UW hood.
Payment for orders will be taken when picking up your apparel. Rental costs for those participating in the main ceremony will be covered by the Office of Ceremonies.
Change/cancel your order
Return to the RSVP/regalia order form and simply update your record and re-submit. Note: Once an order ships, payment is required, so please change or cancel by midnight May 8 to avoid paying.
Faculty participating in the Husky Stadium Commencement Ceremony are not charged for renting regalia. Faculty may rent a full set (gown, hood, and tam/mortarboard) and receive the tam or mortarboard for free. If you choose to order individual pieces, you will be responsible for paying for the items.
