Regalia and tickets

We would appreciate it if you would tell us of your plans using the new Commencement section of the MIT Atlas app on a desktop or mobile device. Before registering, make sure you have the latest version of the MIT Atlas app installed on your desktop or mobile device. The MIT App Store has links to download or update the app from the Apple, Google, and Windows app stores.

To register, open the app, click on the Commencement tile, and follow the prompts to indicate which ceremonies you will attend. The app will then walk you through ordering rental regalia if you need it. Please note we no longer accept cash payments. Acceptable forms of payment at the time of pick up include an MIT cost object number or a personal check made payable to MIT.

The regalia rental deadline has passed. However, extra robes and hoods are available. If you register to participate and request regalia (which is required), we will try to accommodate you
