Faculty Commencement Participation
Faculty interested in participating will be emailed at a later date and asked to complete the Faculty Participation Form. The form permits faculty to order regalia and to confirm their participation. Faculty members participating in commencement may wear their own regalia or order rental regalia at no cost. Faculty members who complete the form after the deadline may not receive regalia specific to their degree as it may not arrive in time for the commencement ceremony. Faculty orders received after the deadline may be accommodated with generic regalia. Please be reminded that rented regalia must be returned immediately following the ceremony at the Credit Union 1 Arena.
