Graduation Regalia

Council on Academic Affairs RSO/Academic Program Graduation Regalia Request

All regalia worn at University Commencement and/or College Convocations must be approved by the Council on Academic Affairs (CAA) prior to graduation. Special regalia worn at Commencement/Convocation is a privilege afforded to those individuals/groups who have met a distinctive academic expectation.

An RSO requesting to have members wear organization-specific regalia (stoles, cords, etc.) must complete this form and submit to EKU Student Life & First-Year Experience. Student Life & First-Year Experience will present the request at the next available CAA meeting. The wearing of sashes may not be proposed as it is exclusively reserved for those students earning Latin Honors.  A request by an academic program should be submitted to the Dean’s Office of their relevant college.  The request will then be brought forward to CAA by the Associate Dean of the college.

Forms should be submitted no later than the 1st week in October to request an item be approved for a December ceremony, or the 1st week in March for a May ceremony.

RSOs must complete the form and attach a color picture of the regalia for which they are proposing approval. Failure to receive approval will result in unapproved regalia being confiscated at graduation.
