phd and masters ceremony

Ph.D. Regalia

Ph.D. regalia is available for purchase or rental at Barnes & Noble @ Georgia Tech; it cannot be purchased online.

Regalia is custom fitted for Ph.D. candidates, and graduates are encouraged to contact the bookstore at the start of the semester to schedule a fitting. Ph.D. candidates participating in Commencement will receive their hoods as a gift from the Institute. 

All Ph.D. orders must be placed and paid in full six weeks before ceremony. Ph.D. orders may be taken during the bookstore’s operating hours; no appointment is necessary. Ph.D. candidates may also place their orders during Commencement Fair.


Ph.D. candidates have two options:
 
  • Purchase
    • Ph.D. regalia is available for purchase at the cost of $857 before tax.
  • Rental
    • Ph.D. regalia can also be rented for $169.98 before tax. This price includes the rental of the gown plus the purchase of your tam, as tams are not rented. 
    • Those who rent regalia will receive notification that their gown and tam have arrived at the bookstore. Graduates will then need to present either a photo identification or a copy of the original receipt in order to obtain their rented regalia.
    • All rentals must be returned within three days of the Commencement ceremony, or graduates will be obligated to pay the full price of the regalia.
