About Academic Regalia
The MGH Institute values the centuries-old decorum and proud traditions associated with academia regalia. With their unique heraldry and degree-specific designs, these regalia are long-standing emblems of our higher education culture. The cap, gown, and hood have become international symbols of learning and accomplishment.
We also recognize, while promoting an inclusive, welcoming Commencement experience for all, that there are traditional regalia and ceremonial garments of similar importance associated with other cultures. Students who wish to substitute the regalia of their family heritage in place of the IHP regalia, should request an exemption from the IHP specifications by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Note, the Institute will review and make a decision on all such requests in order to ensure the formal nature of Commencement. Please submit all requests for the 2020 ceremony by no later than Friday, April 19, 2020.
Important note: Caps, Gowns, and Hoods (If applicable) are yours to keep after the Commencement Ceremonies.
