Academic dress at GW varies by the degree type.
While as previously announced, we anticipate all spring Commencement events will be virtual, members of the class of 2021 have expressed interest in ordering regalia and keepsakes that can be shared with family, friends, and colleagues. Please see below to order regalia, announcements, and more.
Bachelor or Master Regalia
For purchase only. Rentals are not available for bachelor's or master's candidates.
- Order regalia online until May 30, 2021. Early bird pricing is available through March 30, 2021.
Doctoral Regalia Custom Purchase
Custom doctoral regalia purchases take approximately six weeks from the time of purchase for manufacturing and shipping. Alternatively, standard doctoral regalia can be rented without this lead time.
- Order regalia online (direct ship to home).
Doctoral Regalia Rental
Rental includes SMHS-Health Sciences and M.D.
- Order regalia online (direct ship to home) until May 30, 2021.
The Herff Jones Law School regalia website will be operational in January. GW Law will email law students with the website link once it is operational. We appreciate your patience.
