Colleagues, 

This is a final reminder to faculty and staff planning to attend Seattle Colleges Commencement (Tuesday, June 21, at T-Mobile Park). To place an order for rental regalia for commencement, visit the Faculty and Staff Regalia webpage and complete the online order form by 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.

The gowns and regalia items will be available on the day of the ceremony at T-Mobile Park in the Diamond Club, the designated preparation space. Faculty and staff should plan to change into their regalia before the ceremony. Once the ceremony is over,simply return the items to the Diamond Club. 

Thank you for your consideration.
