Academic attire is required for those who walk at Commencement.
Graduates must purchase academic regalia. The Lesley Bookstore at 1815 Massachusetts Avenue, Cambridge will begin selling attire the first week in April. Graduates may also purchase attire online via the Herff Jones website.
For master’s degree candidates, a hood also comes with the attire package. The colors of your hood reflect your degree and program:
Master of Arts = white velvet trim
Master of Education = light blue velvet trim
Master of Fine Arts = brown velvet trim
