Students must wear academic regalia for both the Baccalaureate and Commencement ceremonies. 

The Office of Institutional Research will be in contact with graduating seniors to request that they submit a senior survey. The bookstore will be notified of all graduating seniors who have submitted this survey, and those graduates will receive their regalia free of charge. If the survey is not completed, graduates will be responsible for the cost of the regalia ($40). Regalia may be picked up in the bookstore Thursday, May 17-Saturday, May 19. Please note that the regalia is not to be returned to the bookstore; it is for the graduates to keep.

If you have studied abroad (for credit, non-credit bearing experiences abroad do not qualify) during your college career, you should have received a Center for Global Study and Engagement (CGSE) survey associated with your study site. Upon completion of the survey, your flag badge will be sent to your HUB box. If you have not yet completed your survey, please contact the CGSE no later than Friday, May 4.

If you studied in Carlisle every semester you were a Dickinson student, you are eligible for the Carlisle badge as a participant in the “Carlisle In-Broad Program.” These are available in the Bookstore on a first come, first served basis.

All flag badges are to be affixed to the right shoulder on the outside of your robe.

Academic hoods will be presented just prior to receipt of the degrees. Please note that when asked prior to receiving your hood, it is important that you know which degree you are receiving, B.A. or B.S., as the hood color is different for each.

Diploma Pick-up

Following Commencement, original diplomas will be available for pickup until 2 p.m. on the Holland Union Building Underground Patio.
