Regalia Return

Doctoral-level regalia (hood, gown and tam) MUST be returned to the rental company. Failure to return regalia will result in the rental company charging you a $900 replacement fee.

A representative from Oak Hall will be present to collect caps and gowns after the SOM ceremony. If you are only attending the University-wide ceremony, you can return the regalia directly after that ceremony.
