Academic Regalia

To participate in Rutgers University Commencement and school convocations, graduates of Rutgers University–New Brunswick and Rutgers Biomedical and Health Sciences need to dress in academic regalia.

Getting Your Cap and Gown

Students who are on track to obtain their degrees and who plan to participate in Rutgers University Commencement on May 17, 2015, should order and purchase their regalia at the Rutgers University bookstores, or for our RBHS graduates, through the Dean's office at your school. 

All graduating students are required to wear academic regalia during the University Commencement ceremony. Those in the Armed Forces must also wear academic regalia. Military uniforms may be worn underneath academic gowns.

Rutgers–New Brunswick

Regalia will be available for purchase at the Barnes & Noble at Rutgers bookstore through May 17. In addition to your regalia, you'll find diploma frames, Rutgers apparel, and gifts there.
