Regalia
Students participating in the commencement ceremonies are expected to wear appropriate academic dress (cap, gown, and hood) purchased through the university bookstore. Students will receive an email (usually in February) with instructions on how and when to order regalia.

Cords: if you are eligible for honors cords in the department, student activity/leadership cords, or Baldwin honors cords, you will need to speak directly with those offices to determine how they will be distributed. Cords will not be available at the ceremony unless you were specifically told where and when to pick them up on the ceremony day from the office that handles the cord. Drew University does not distribute cords for Latin honors.
