All our ceremonial gowns meet the UC specifications registered with the Intercollegiate Bureau of Academic Costume. The body of the gown is made of the highest quality dark blue polyester crepe. The sleeve chevrons and front panels are made with elegant and classic royal blue velvet and finished with gold piping. Bell sleeves are used, in the doctoral gown tradition. A full-length zipper in the front and two side pockets are also included.
The body of the hood is constructed of dark blue polyester crepe and plush, royal blue velvet, which denotes the Ph.D. The hood is lined with luminous satin in blue and gold, signifying the University of California’s colors. The entire hood is finished with gold satin trim.
The eight-sided cap is made of our finest royal blue plush velvet, which is recognized worldwide as the industry standard. A silk tassel is included with the cap. A gold bullion tassel can be included for an additional $10.
All University of California graduates wear the same officially designed UC regalia.
