Custom licensed fine quality regalia is available to any graduating student or Alumni. Typically fine quality regalia is reserved for individuals who pursue a career as a professor and may need a fine quality gown to use at future commencement ceremonies. There are 2 options for fine quality gowns that the University Store offers:

  1. Custom brown and gold gown, hood, and tam: These purchases go directly through the University Store. Please click this link to access the measurement form that will need to be filled out to ensure the gown is made to the individual’s exact measurements. Email the measurement form, along with the degree (ex. masters in zoology, doctorate in animal science, etc.), name, phone number, and shipping address of the individual ordering to Doctoral regalia sets are $610. Since gowns are custom, payment will need to be processed over the phone with the University Store before the order will be submitted to Jostens.
  2. Custom fine quality black gown, hood, and tam: Purchases for black fine quality gowns will go through this link. These are for individuals who did not graduate from the University of Wyoming OR simply UW Alumni who would prefer a black gown instead of a brown and gold gown. Price will fluctuate based on embellishments and style chosen.

Please note that fine quality regalia can take up to 8 weeks to arrive.
