Academic Regalia

StFX Store, Bloomfield Centre

You will require a gown and the appropriate hood for the degree you are to receive. Candidates for diplomas will wear gowns with collars. If you already hold a degree from StFX, or another university, you may wear the hood for that degree. You must be on the official list of grad candidates and must provide your full name, student ID # and size.

Graduates who require special physical or time considerations should contact Regalia Services at the StFX Store at 1.902.867.2450.

NOTE: If you signed out a gown for the X-Ring Ceremony in December, and did not return it, you must use that gown. Duplicate gowns will not be issued.

Appropriate Dress: Semi-formal attire and comfortable shoes are recommended.
