Academic Regalia Adornment Approval Form
for Law Center Ceremony

Registered student organizations or Law Center-created co-curricular organizations must seek approval for a
collective adornment to the Law Center’s academic regalia for use by their student members or participants.

Students - Academic Regalia Adornment Approval Form

Verbal Description of Proposed Adornment

Below you must provide a brief description of the proposed adornment (including color, materials, size, any wording or symbols on the item). NOTE: Draft this language with care. If your regalia request is approved, this is the language that will be included on the Law Center’s Commencement webpage.

Adornments include, but are not limited to: stoles, ribbons, sashes, etc. For example, one long-standing approved adornment for LSU’s “main” or University Ceremony is the wearing of Kente Stoles bestowed by the African American Cultural Center. As another example, LSU’s varsity student-athlete graduates may wear a white stole.

Please be aware that purple, gold, and/or white cords (or any combination of purple cords, gold cords, and white cords) will not be approved, since those are the designations for Latin honors at LSU (i.e., cum laude, magna cum laude, summa cum laude). Additionally, no additional academic hoods will be approved, as Law Center graduates already receive an academic hood at the ceremony.

Photo or Representative Image

Upload a photo or representative image of the proposed adornment. If approved, an image made after final regalia production occurs, which must correspond in all material ways to this image, will be featured on the Academic Regalia website.
