Regalia is an important part of the commencement tradition. For details about regalia, including ordering, pickup, and more, contact the UF bookstore directly:
- Cap & Gown Ordering
Graduating students can order their regalia (cap and gown) through their Gator 1 beginning late February, after their application for graduation has been submitted. Orders submitted after the deadline (TBA) will incur a late fee.
Bachelor's, master's, and specialist's degree candidates purchase regalia. Doctoral candidates most often rent regalia. Regalia pickup at the bookstore begings Monday, April 19 and will continue through the extended graduation weekend. In order to pick up regalia, you must have a UFID.
- Cap & Gown Requirement
Degree candidates must wear regalia (cap and gown) in order to participate in the University Wide Commencment in Ben Hill Griffin Stadium.
Some college recognition ceremonies require regalia, others do not. Check with your college's recognition ceremony page or coordinator to ensure you're prepared for your college's ceremony.
