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.

  • Diplomas, Transcripts, and Graduation Application

    Requesting Transcripts

    Current students can request a transcript through RegisHub.

    Alumni and former students request through our National Student Clearinghouse at transcripts@studentclearinghouse.org.

    Mailing of Diplomas

    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.

    Translation of Degree

    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.

    Read the degree translation

    Graduation Application

    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.

  • Regalia

    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 bookstore@regiscollege.edu.

    Veteran’s Cords

    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.
