The most wonderful moment of your graduate career is the graduation ceremony, or commencement, as it signals the beginning of your life with your new degree. Each May and December, Georgia Tech holds commencement ceremonies for undergraduate and graduate students. Visit Georgia Tech's Commencement website for all the details you need to prepare for your ceremony including graduation requirements, deadlines, day of logistics, and information regarding academic regalia.

Commencement Regalia Assistance Fund

The Office of Graduate Education, with support from the Office of the Provost, administers the Commencement Regalia Assistance Fund (CRAF). This fund was created to assist with regalia rental and/or purchase costs for graduate students demonstrating financial need where the expense would otherwise prohibit the student from participating in the commencement ceremony. The CRAF will cover regalia robe rental and tam purchase for Ph.D. degree candidates ($185.98) or regalia purchase for master's degree candidates ($114.98). If you are interested in receiving assistance, please complete this form. The deadline to submit is March 1 for spring semester, and October 1 for fall semester. Requests will be reviewed by the Office of Graduate Education and must be approved prior to the student visiting Barnes & Noble to complete the order. For additional information, please contact our Help Desk.
