All graduates participating in the 2017 Commencement Exercises will need to select one Regalia option on this form to become eligible to receive Commencement tickets. If no options appear after logging in, or you cannot access the ticketing window please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. Information regarding guest tickets for Commencement will be emailed to graduates in early May.
Beginning April 25th this form can only be completed by graduates to indicate they are using an alternative to regalia provided by the Coop. Acceptable alternatives are: wearing of your approved military uniform or the use of regalia from another source. The Coop provides a limited number of extra gowns to rent on a first-come, first-served basis at the MIT Coop in Kendall Square from Tuesday, May 30 through Friday, June 9 for an additional fee of $25.
All graduates participating in the Commencement Exercises must wear academic regalia or for those in active military service; the prescribed dress uniform. You may either rent or purchase academic regalia from the Coop, or provide your own. Please make the proper selection on this form.
Air Force, Marine, and Navy ROTC candidates may wear the prescribed dress uniform instead of academic regalia, provided they have spoken with their respective commanders and have been given the correct rank to wear with their service dress.
