The forms of academic dress at the University enhance the reputation of its awards and
honour the academic achievements of its members.
If you are attending the ceremony to receive your award, you must wear the correct academic dress (regalia) for the award you are receiving, regardless of any other awards you may already have. Anyone not wearing correct academic dress will not be permitted to participate in the ceremony. What you wear under your regalia is up to you, but as this is a formal occasion we encourage you to choose suitably smart attire.
You can check the regalia for your award in the University’s Academic Dress Policy.
Where to hire/purchase regalia
Reed Graduation Services (Reed) is the preferred supplier for regalia at all University of Divinity ceremonies.
On the Reed website you can:
- book (hire or purchase) your graduation regalia
- pre-book a portrait photography session (Melbourne ceremony only)
- order University of Divinity merchandise
You will need your student number to place an order. Only students who have been approved to graduate will be able to hire or purchase regalia on the Reed website.
Step-by-step instructions on how to navigate the Reed website will be sent to you by email along with other graduation ceremony information.
Regalia for Alumni
Alumni of the University can contact Reed (Tel: 1300 361 806) to purchase the regalia for their award outside of upcoming graduation ceremony dates.
