Faculty are encouraged to wear regalia from their awarding institutions. Regalia is available for rent and purchase from the University Bookstore.
Regalia can be secured for a nominal rental fee from the University Bookstore at www.bookstore.txstate.edu. Orders for rental regalia must be placed prior to April 19 for spring commencement. Rental orders are non-refundable.
Faculty may return rental regalia to University Bookstore representatives at commencement. A map showing the bookstore's location at commencement can be found here.
Regalia can be purchased from the University Bookstore for future ceremonies. Please contact the bookstore to set up an appointment for a fitting.
Faculty will meet in Jowers Gym 101 thirty minutes prior to the ceremony in order to line up for the processional. The Faculty Marshals will lead the faculty from Gym 101 and follow the Platform Party to the coliseum floor.
The Faculty will process down the center aisle, turn right in front of the platform, and then file into the Faculty Reserved Seating Area (Section C).
