Academic Attire

Academic attire is required at BOTH the university and divisional ceremonies.

Associate's degree candidates wear the same robe as bachelor's candidates. Master's candidates must wear a robe and hood. Doctoral candidates need to purchase only cap, gown, and tassel, as the hood will be awarded as part of the ceremony.

The Miami University Brick & Ivy Campus Store will carry the full array of bachelor's, master's, and doctoral garments. Attire will be available for purchase at the Brick & Ivy Campus Stores (Oxford, Middletown and Hamilton locations) April 1, 2020 to May 15, 2020, and will be available for purchase online at the Miami University Brick & Ivy Campus Store March 1 to May 4.

Special Orders and Regalia Rental

Special orders for Tams and Regalia need to be placed no later than Friday, March 6, 2020.

Faculty members who want to rent faculty-quality attire need to order by April 17, 2020. Orders received after April 17 will be charged a rush fee.
