Regalia consists of a mortarboard cap, gown, and tassel. Graduate and doctoral students will also receive a hood for their degree. All regalia are complimentary and students can keep them after the ceremonies.
Students receiving academic honors
Undergraduate students receiving academic honors of a 3.5 GPA or above will get a gold cord that can be worn during the ceremony. These will be available in Solomon Court during the open cap and gown pick-up days and times.
At the Commencement Ceremony each year, we celebrate Northeastern’s diverse and global graduating class by asking graduates to wave flags representing their home country, a location they did a global experience, or a place of importance to them. Boston graduates can fill out the Graduation Flag Form by April 1, 2023 to receive a flag. Flags will be available when you pick up your cap and gown.
