Regalia Accessories

The only regalia accessories endorsed for Harvard University’s Commencement Exercises, including the HES Commencement Ceremony, are University-provided regalia accessories (such as a stole, pin, tassel, cord, etc.). Neither University-wide regalia accessories, nor Harvard Extension School regalia accessories can be created by students or student-run organizations without planning and approval by Harvard University’s student affairs, commencement, and OEDIB offices. Those who attempt to sell unapproved academic regalia — including stoles, pins, tassels, cords, etc. — may face exclusion from Harvard commencement events.

Please note Harvard Extension School is currently unable to approve student and student-run organizations’ customized/personalized regalia accessory requests. We appreciate your understanding.

Please be advised that graduates who wear regalia accessories not provided by the University must remove these before participating in all Harvard Commencement events.
