Regalia Orders for Faculty – Carolinas Campus

Faculty should reuse their regalia from last year and not order a new set. However, new faculty can submit an order. Also, any VCOM alumni or international faculty that use a VCOM hood should order a new VCOM hood. The VCOM hood was updated this year with new colors.  

Directions: When ordering faculty regalia, select “Edward Via College of Osteopathy Medicine  – Carolina Faculty” and only submit 1 order, even if you are participating in multiple graduations. Please answer all questions and include the college from which you received your highest degree and the field of study. (When you see a field for “degree”, please complete as “field of study”, like medicine or pharmacology.) Then, submit once you have completed the form. Please place orders by March 29, 2019.
