Commencement is an important and joyful event for Regis College. It is when our graduates, and those who love and support them, can celebrate the culmination of years of hard work and perseverance.
For the classes of 2020 and 2021, who completed their degrees during an unprecedented public health crisis, it is imperative we show them how proud we are of their incredible accomplishments. And the Regis community will do that on Saturday, May 8, with two separate virtual commencement ceremonies.
This page will be updated regularly with key information as more details become available. Please continue to check your emails regarding important updates and information.

Invitations for students to upload a photo, record pronunciations of their names, and share a personal memory or favorite quote were emailed out to the class of 2020 and class of 2021 graduates on March 29. If you have not received this email, please first check your spam/junk folder, then email firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance.
Any audio pronunciations are due by Wednesday, April 14, and the last day to submit photos/messages is Friday, April 23.
Regis College is pleased to announce Garth Graham, MD, MPH, an accomplished physician and leading authority on social determinants of health, will deliver the commencement address at Regis College’s 2021 and 2020 Commencement exercises on Saturday, May 8. Additionally, Regis will bestow honorary degrees on Forbes’ Top 100 Most Powerful Women honoree and Bank of America Vice Chairman Anne Finucane, and James Brett, president of the New England Council.
Current students can request a transcript through RegisHub.
Alumni and former students request through our National Student Clearinghouse at email@example.com.
Diplomas will be mailed to the student once the degree is conferred. Students should note that the COVID situation has interrupted the production of diplomas by the printer. This may delay the timing of when a student receives their diploma.
The Regis Associate, Bachelor, Master, and Doctoral degrees are all printed in Latin. The degrees are printed in Latin as the original degrees were in 1927. College honors for Associate and Bachelor degrees are included. However, we do not include majors.
Students who anticipate graduating May 2021 or August 2021 must complete the Graduation Application on RegisHub if they have not already done so. This form initiates the graduation audit process and is the only way the Registrar’s Office knows who to evaluate for possible graduation.
Once students submit the application, they will receive a confirmation email. If they do not receive a confirmation, they must resubmit the application through RegisHub. Students can go back to review or update their application through RegisHub up to the week before their graduation date. If changes need to be made after that, they can contact the Registrar’s Office. Submitting this application notifies the Registrar’s Office of a student’s intent to graduate only. All degree audits must be approved by applicable advisors, program directors, and the Registrar’s Office.
Graduating students can order regalia (cap, gown, and hood) by visiting www.buildagrad.com/regis.
Students who are part of the on-campus COVID-19 testing protocol can have regalia shipped to the campus bookstore for pickup between April 21 and April 28. Students not in the on-campus testing protocol should select the "ship to home" option.
Doctoral students pay online when ordering.
The deadline for ordering regalia is 11:59 p.m. on March 21, 2021.
For questions or additional information please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Veterans Center and the Center for Student Engagement are pleased to provide military cords to graduates to wear with your cap and gown. If you are a veteran or an active military service member, please submit your request by Friday, April 2.
For the sixth year, the Black Student Union, Multicultural Student Association, Center for Student Engagement, and Center for Inclusive Excellence are honored to provide the Kente Stole to all graduating students. Students are also welcomed to wear a stole from their country, which you would be responsible for purchasing on your own.
The Gay Straight Alliance is happy to provide students who identify with the LGBTQIA+ community and their allies with rainbow tassels to recognize their achievements and contributions to the Regis community.
There will be no commencement fee charges for both the Class of 2020 and for the Class of 2021.
Congratulations! The finish line is in sight.
