Maroon Graduation Regalia

At GraduationSource, we're proud to offer maroon graduation regalia that makes a lasting impression. Maroon is a designated color for graduates in communications, forestry, and theology fields. Traditionally, graduates should wear maroon if they've earned any degree in these departments. The color maroon often symbolizes confidence, power, and passion. This regal and distinctive hue will bring even more prestige to your momentous event.

Academic regalia dates back to the Middle Ages, conveying honor and prestige to graduates for centuries. Established in 1893, the American Academic Costume Code created the intercollegiate color code for various majors and subjects. If your department elects to wear maroon at commencement, graduates can still accessorize by decorating their caps and donning a tassel.

Most schools have unique traditions for graduation regalia, and maroon is a rich and complex tone. Derived from the French word "marron" (which means "chestnut"), maroon has a brownish crimson shade. A maroon gown looks incredible in portraits, and it flatters all skin tones and hair colors. You can also pair a black gown with a maroon tassel – a priceless memento that lasts a lifetime.

Depending on your school's preference, we offer maroon graduation caps and gowns in a shiny or matte finish. Matte gowns look attractive in flash photos, while shiny gowns drape nicely and tend to be more comfortable. We think the matte maroon gowns look particularly prestigious, with a deep hue that will elevate the ceremony.

Designed with 100% polyester, our maroon gowns are offered in 15 different sizes. Maroon bachelor's gowns are designed with subtle fluting around the shoulders and decorative piping around the neckline. Master's gowns have distinctive long sleeves, while doctoral gowns have black velvet piping that runs down the arms. Meanwhile, our woven polyester caps have a form-fitting elastic band that fits most adults. We also offer large-quantity discounts on maroon gowns for your entire academic department.

Likewise, honors recipients typically wear maroon honor cords for cum laude, summa cum laude, or magna cum laude status. Crafted from high-quality fabric, our cords and tassels are available in many colors that accent our maroon graduation gowns. Maroon cords also designate membership in honors societies like Alpha Sigma Lambda, Delta Epsilon Sigma, and Omega Chi Epsilon. Some universities use maroon as one of their official colors, including University of Chicago, Boston College, and Texas A&M.

In addition, we offer a variety of silk honors stoles and sashes, which signify that your graduate has earned a special academic achievement. After receiving your diploma, keep it safe in a maroon imprinted cover with foam padding. We also offer personalized medals with Old English engravings. These signify a variety of honors, whether one is a Head Start graduate or a magna cum laude recipient.

Excited to wear maroon on graduation day? At GraduationSource, we love academic traditions that bring graduates together around the world, like donning maroon at commencement. Visit our blog for more graduation planning tips and educational resources.
