Ordering Regalia

All students who walk in commencement are required to wear regalia. Regalia can be purchased through the Regis Bookstore and will be yours to keep after the ceremony. Regalia cannot be rented, but can be purchased using one of the following options:

  1. Call or email the Regis University Bookstore at 303.458.4150 or email using the Bookstore regalia order form. Accepted payment options: Major credit cards, cash, check or book voucher
  2. Place an order online at

Regalia should be ordered approximately one month prior to commencement. The Regis Bookstore will be at the commencement ceremony for any last-minute changes, but it is strongly recommended that orders are placed ahead of time to ensure the correct gown size and tassel/hood color.

Details on pricing and colors to order are listed below. When ordering, please specify your degree for tassel and hood color. Example: Bachelor of Arts or Master of Science (NOT Bachelor of Arts in Communication or Master of Science in Criminology). Hood and tassel color are determined by degree type rather than by area of study.

Regis University does not provide Honor Cords, only Honor Societies provide cords. If you would like an Honor Society Cord, please contact the honor society that you belong to for order information.

Questions About Regalia?

All students are required to purchase the appropriate regalia based on degree and area of study in order to participate in commencement.
