Regalia and tickets


Faculty members may wear their own or rented regalia. We offer a webform through which you may register to march at Commencement and/or Hooding, order rental regalia, and request a guest ticket. The form will open in mid-April 2016.

Regalia pick-up and return

Complete details regarding regalia will be available ~February 15, 2016.

Questions about registration and regalia may be directed to Kimberly Nelson.


If you are marching in the Commencement procession, you do not need a ticket. If you would like a ticket for your personal guest, please request it via

A note about Commencement guest tickets: tickets available to MIT faculty are intended for use by faculty members or their guests only. Faculty tickets are not to be given to students. This is a matter of both fairness and logistics, as these tickets are separate and apart from the "general seating" area for which degree candidates receive four guest tickets. Questions about ticketing policies may be directed to Thank you.
