Commencement and Doctoral Ceremony 2020 Regalia Ordering


**March 19, 2020: MIT is tracking the COVID-19 (coronavirus) situation daily, offering ongoing updates and guidance. With the virus now established in the US, conditions are changing rapidly. At this time, regalia ordering for graduates is suspended. It will be re-activated if and when it is possible to do so. If you have not yet ordered your regalia, please do not let this concern you right now. Take care of yourselves and please remain alert to the official information on MIT’s response to the challenge of COVID-19.**


OVERVIEW


All graduates participating in the 2020 Commencement Exercises or Doctoral Ceremony must wear academic regalia and must complete this form. Those in active military service may wear the prescribed dress uniform (Air Force, Army, Marine, and Navy ROTC candidates, please see option 3 below).

Your Commencement guest tickets will not be released to you in May unless you provide proof that you’ve made your regalia arrangements. Please determine your preferred regalia option from the list below and read all associated instructions. Again, you must complete this form.

Your Commencement guest tickets will be released to you electronically no earlier than May 13, 2020. Your Commencement guest tickets are not contained in the confirmation you receive immediately after completing the regalia form.

If no options appear after logging in, or you cannot access the ticketing window, please first ensure that you are on the Registrar's list of graduating students and that you've confirmed your attendance for Commencement or Doctoral Hooding. If the Registrar's office confirms your status, and you are still unable to place your order, please contact regalia@mit.edu.
