Students must wear regalia (cap and gown) in order to participate in commencement.

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

You can order your cap & gown through your Gator1 beginning (TBD), after you have submitted your application for graduation. For orders submitted after the late deadline (TBD), a late fee of $10 will be charged.

Bachelor’s, master’s and specialist’s graduates purchase regalia. Doctoral candidates most often rent regalia. Purchased regalia will be mailed to your home. Rented regalia will be picked up at the bookstore beginning August 3.

Please note, the commencement office cannot assist with regalia orders, these MUST be handled through the bookstore.
