Academic attire is required for those who walk at Commencement.
Graduates must purchase academic regalia, either online through Herff Jones, or starting in April, in person at the Lesley Bookstore, 1815 Massachusetts Avenue, Cambridge. Please note, the Herff Jones online store is currently being updated to reflect the changes for 2014. Stay tuned!
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
