Ordering Regalia

Information and Guidelines for Ordering Student Regalia for Graduation

Please click the link below to order your graduation regalia. This link will take you to the R. M. Hendrick Graduate Supply House website.  The information you provide will help ensure that you receive appropriately sized regalia. The graduation fee you have already paid covers the cost of your regalia.  On the ordering page, make sure to select “Yes” to the statement “I have reviewed my responses above to verify accuracy” before clicking the submit button. Additionally, you will be able to keep your regalia as a memento of your graduation from medical school. The deadline for placing your order is Monday, March 18, 2024, at midnight. 


(Once you are on the site, read through the information on the cover page, then click “Complete your Order” to go to the ordering page).

If you have any questions about ordering regalia, please contact Paige Oglesby at or Meredithe Kelsoe at  

Information and Guidelines for Ordering Family Hooder Regalia

VCOM allows select family members to support you on stage as you are hooded during the graduation ceremony. While the President will present your D.O. hood and place it on you, certain family members are invited to be with you. This opportunity is only available to your spouse, parents, stepparents, grandparents, brothers/sisters, aunts/uncles, and ONLY if they have a D.O. or M.D. degree. Family friends, mentors and family-like individuals are not included, and no other degrees are permitted. The cost for renting family hooder regalia is $76.00 and you can pay with a credit card online.

*Family regalia is rented and IS NOT to be kept. It must be turned in after the ceremony before you can receive your diploma!

Any student with a family hooder must complete this survey for the family hooder to participate in graduation:

The deadline for placing the order for Family Hooder regalia is Monday, March 18 at midnight and family hooders will order and pay for their regalia directly on the website.  The student will pick up the family member’s regalia when they pick up their own regalia. 

*For questions about family hooders, please contact Paige Oglesby at
