Doctoral Fitting Day

The Commencement Office will host its second Doctoral Fitting Day today (March 17) from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Tinkham Veale University Center, Smith Commons (main floor).

Doctoral fittings are events open to all professional and doctoral students (PhD, JD, SJD, MD, DNP, DMD, DM and DMA graduates).  At the Doctoral fittings, professional and doctoral degree candidates can register to participate in commencement ceremonies and have their regalia measurements taken.

Representatives from the University Bookstore and the Commencement Office will be on hand to assist students with their graduation planning and celebration needs.

Students earning a professional or doctoral degree may opt to rent or purchase regalia. This selection is made during the commencement registration process.

Professional and doctoral regalia will be ready for pick up/payment at the University Bookstore May 15-20.
