Faculty and Staff Regalia

Commencement is a formal academic ceremony. Everyone taking part in the procession and ceremony—including students, faculty members, deans, directors, and college leaders—is asked to wear academic regalia. Some may own their gowns and regalia; others may need rental regalia.

Ordering Rental Regalia

Seattle Colleges faculty and staff members who are planning to take part in the procession and ceremony may order rental regalia if they do not have their own. The commencement budget will cover the cost of rental regalia items for faculty and staff. 

The order form closed at 1 p.m. on Friday, May 20.

Please place an order only if you are firmly committed to participating in the procession and ceremony. The commencement budget incurs the cost for unused regalia, thus reducing the funds available to students. 

    Rental Regalia Available at Commencement

    The rented gowns and regalia items will be available on the day of the ceremony, Tuesday, June 21, at T-Mobile Park in the Diamond Club, the designated robing room and preparation space. Faculty and staff will arrive and change into their regalia before the ceremony. Once the ceremony is over, they can simply return the items to the Diamond Club.
