UW Commencement

We are returning to a rental basis for all faculty regalia orders this year.  Details on faculty rental regalia are as follows:

PhD regalia ($84): With one exception, PhD regalia will consist of a black doctoral robe, a black tam, and a PhD hood with the colors of school that conferred the degree.  Exception: If you received your PhD degree from the University of Washington, you will be provided the custom UW purple PhD regalia on a rental basis.


Professional degree regalia ($84):
Professional degree regalia will consist of a black doctoral robe (same as PhD robe above), a black tam, and a professional hood (law, pharm, dentistry, law) with the appropriate trim color for each degree (i.e., purple for law, green for medicine, etc.) and the colors of the degree-conferring school on the inside satin lining.

Master’s degree regalia ($72): Master’s degree regalia will consist of a black master’s robe, a black tam or a mortarboard with a black tassel (faculty may chose either), and a master’s hood with trim color reflecting the degree (e.g., orange for engineering), and the colors of the degree-conferring school on the inside satin lining.
