ACADEMIC REGALIA
(Diplomate and Licenciate)

For Doctoral regalia, please visit this page.

The regalia consists of a black toga worn open (laity). Over that is worn an academic hood by those holding a licentiate except for prelates.
The hood is trimmed in red velvet and lined in the colour of the field of study. The colours are scarlet for Sacred Theology, Roman purple
for Canon Law,
royal blue for Sacred Philosophy, and white for Sacred Letters. 
The cap for laity is a black mortarboard with red tassel. For clergy, their regular biretta, kamilavka, or skufia is worn.

Convocation dress: Laity wear the regalia over a black suit or morning dress. Regular clergy wear the regalia over their house cassock. Prelates wear the house cassock with toga or ferraiolo proper to their rank and their regular biretta, kamilavka, or skufia.

Festive dress: Laity wear the regalia over a black suit with winged-collar shirt and white bow tie. Regular clergy wear the black toga over their cassock exactly as in convocation dress.
Prelates wear the choral habit proper to their rank and their regular biretta, kamilavka, or skufia. 

The festive dress is worn at solemn ceremonies, such as the conferral of degrees.
