Regalia is an important part of the commencement tradition. For details about regalia, contact the UF bookstore directly:

Cap & Gown Ordering

Graduating students order their regalia (cap and gown) through their Gator 1 beginning February 1st.

Any regalia orders received after March 2nd will incur a late fee.

Bachelor's, master's, and specialist's degree candidates purchase regalia. Doctoral candidates most often rent regalia. 

Regalia pick-up is at the UF Bookstore in the Reitz Union beginning April 18.
