Academic Regalia

Delegates, faculty, and staff who plan to participate in the procession are requested to provide their own academic regalia. When you RSVP, be sure to indicate that you will take part in the procession.

Robing will take place beginning at 12:30 p.m. in the women's basketball court in the Shivers Basketball Practice Facility. To access the gym, enter through the Bell Center and proceed to The Knapp Center court. You’ll then proceed toward the hallway titled “Women’s basketball,” which is located on the northeast corner of the court. Procession participants are asked to arrive no later than 1 p.m., and the academic procession will form at 1:15 p.m. Participants in the procession will be seated on the floor of The Knapp Center.

If you wish to rent regalia, you may do so through the University Book Store. Contact Katie Wilz at or 515-274-3401. Regalia orders must be placed by March 21, 2016. Costs are detailed in the Academic Regalia Costs. For those faculty or staff who need academic regalia for the Spring Commencement, you may keep your rented regalia and return if after commencement for no extra charge.
