All faculty are encouraged to support their students through
participation in commencement exercises. Your presence exhibits UAlbany
pride and is important to your students and their families on this
Winter Commencement Ceremony
Sunday, December 8, 2013 @ 1:00 p.m.
All faculty assemble in the Hall of Fame Room in the SEFCU Arena at 12:00 p.m.
Faculty may participate in one of the following ways:
- "Marching" (Non-Hooding) Faculty
Marching faculty will take part in the processional and be seated on stage.
- Hooding Faculty
If you are hooding a doctoral candidate please contact Jonathan Bartow in the office of Graduate Studies by November 12 for further details.
By registering online
you can reserve your seat & rent your regalia at the same time. Assembly time, location, and further details will be sent via email, in the week prior to the ceremony to faculty who have signed-up using the registration link
Sign up for rented regalia using the registration link above. The University will cover the cost of regalia rental for faculty who do not own their own regalia. Representatives from the Bookstore will be in contact with you regarding delivery dates/times. Regalia will NOT be available for pick-up onsite, the day of the ceremony.
Registration & Regalia Rental Deadlines:
November 8: If you wish to reserve a specific hood from your alma mater with your faculty regalia rental, and have the option for bookstore staff deliver your regalia to your office.
All orders placed AFTER Nov. 8 will be supplied with a UAlbany hood, and must be picked up in the bookstore.
November 12: Registration Deadline and the last day faculty rental requests will be accepted.
As in years past regalia will NOT be available for pick-up on site the day of the ceremony.
By December 11: All rental regalia must be returned to the University Bookstore.
* You may also purchase custom tailored regalia. Owning your own regalia frees you from ordering and returning countless rentals. If you are interested in purchasing your own regalia contact the University Bookstore for more information.
