Congratulations, Spring Gator graduates!
To help you prepare for this special re-scheduled weekend, please read this page of important information, links and deadlines.
Please be sure to fill out your registration form when it is emailed to your ufl.edu email address in May.
- Cap & Gown
Graduates must wear regalia (cap and gown) in order to participate in the ceremonies.
Graduates can order regalia through their GatorOne account.
For details about regalia, including orders, shipping, pickup and more, email: Capfirstname.lastname@example.org
Please note, the commencement office cannot assist with regalia orders. Orders MUST go through the UF bookstore.
- Diploma Information
Diplomas are ordered for all graduating students by the Office of the University Registrar. This takes place at the end of the term. Once colleges have posted grades, it takes approximately 8 weeks for graduates to receive their diplomas.
Diplomas are mailed to the graduates' permanent mailing address as it appears in ONE.UF.
- Printed Programs
Graduates will receive two copies of the printed university commencement program in the mail in May. These keepsake programs have the names of all students graduating this semester.
(please note this may not be a fully exhaustive list, as it reflects applications at a given point in the semester; academic honors designations are also determined at this time and may fluctuate through the course of the semester)
The full PDF of the program is available online at https://commencement.ufl.edu at the bottom of the page. This version can be viewed and/or downloaded at any time after it appears.
- Visa for International Guests
If you are an international student who may need assistance with the proper documents for family or friends to come to your ceremony, you should contact UF’s International Center for assistance.
