The Master regalia consists of the gown, cap & tassel and hood. The black gown is mid-calf in length and the sleeve should reach to your wrist. The Master gown sleeve is modified to be larger at the wrist. The black cap is elastic banded and one size fits most. The black tassel is gold banded and has the graduate year in gold as well. The hood has an interior of Cherry and White, the school colors. The exterior of the hood is Black with a colored felt edge that indicates which school from Rensselaer that you obtained your degree. The thickness of the colored felt edge also indicates Bachelor or Master.

A few things to remember:
1.) If you are obtaining a Bachelor degree and a Master degree at the same ceremony, you should be selecting from this section. (The higher degree is the gown you participate in.)
2.) If you are obtaining multiple Bachelor degrees, select the school that is your primary degree. Go back to the Bachelor Cap & Gown Ordering section, not this one.
