Regalia

Although it is not required, eligible graduate who wish to do so may order academic regalia through the DU bookstore! We understand that many of our graduating students would like the option to order academic regalia for personal pictures and family celebrations at home. The bookstore is taking orders now at https://www.bkstr.com/denverstore/home.

Photos, Video, and More

During our Day of Recognition on June 12th, we invite students and families to share their celebratory photos and videos with us and their classmates as we keep the celebration going throughout the day on social media!

Graduating students will also have the opportunity to participate in an on-campus photo moment on June 12 in the Mary Reed Circle. While following all safety protocols, we are inviting graduates to sign up for an in-person Commencement photo moment with the Chancellor and Interim Provost. Details for signing up will be sent the first week of June to eligible students!
