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.
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
