Commencement regalia is available through Oak Hall. Regalia ordering typically opens around January 1st. Masters regalia rentals cost around $35 and Doctor regalia rentals cost around $55. All students who plan on walking in the Commencement ceremony must rent or purchase regalia. If a graduand does not order regalia, he/she will not be eligible to walk in the Commencement ceremony.
Please contact the Registrar's Office if you have any questions.
Regalia pick-up usually begins in mid to late April. In past years, Doctoral students can also pick up regalia the morning of Commencement. Before you pick up your regalia, you must settle your account with the Business Office and complete the graduation surveys available on this site.
Graduates will have to return their rental regalia directly after Commencement. The Registrar’s Office will have a table set up for regalia return in the Narthex of the National Cathedral after the ceremony concludes.
Wesley graduands can order Graduation Announcements through Balfour. Balfour offers several packages in varying price ranges. You can either search for Wesley Theological Seminary from the home page, or go to the site linked here.
Due to space constrictions, graduating students will receive a limited number of tickets.
In mid-April, a Blackboard site is set up for graduating students to request extra tickets from their fellow graduands. Through this site graduands can post messages to fellow classmates either requesting or offering extra tickets. This site is the only avenue to request extra tickets.
When graduands pick up regalia, they can also pick up tickets. In order to receive both regalia and tickets, graduands need to complete the Graduate Student Questionnaire, the Library Services survey, and the Contact Info Update form (links are located at the top right of this page), and settle their account with the Business Office. The Registrar's Office will only release regalia and tickets to the graduand.
Transportation information will be updated as necessary.
In order to pick up regalia, graduands must complete the Graduate Student Questionnaire, and the Library Services survey, and the Graduate Contact Update form. These surveys help us gather information necessary for accreditation statndards and guide efforts to improve future students' experiences. Graduands need to have completed both surveys before picking up regalia and will need to provide proof of completion at regalia pick-up.
