Commencement regalia is available for purchase through the Simmons Bookstore.

Students in crowd

Participants are encouraged to review our standards related to the academic regalia and adornments worn. The policy applies to baccalaureate, master's, and doctoral graduates of Simmons University.

The approved cords and stoles include academics and those celebrating students from marginalized identities and their accomplishments. In addition, affinity cords and stoles are available for purchase from the Bookstore. Please take a look at the cords and stoles policy for more information.
