Ceremonies: This summer, the university-wide commencement ceremonies will be held in the Stephen C. O’Connell Center.

There will be two university-wide commencement ceremonies coordinated by the President’s Office — a Doctoral Degree Ceremony (Friday, August 4th, at 4:00pm) and a Master’s/Specialist’s/Bachelor’s Degree Ceremony (Saturday, August 5th, at 10:00am).

Please see the complete listing of Summer Commencement Ceremonies by clicking on the following link:

Ordering Regalia: Regalia orders will be accepted through July 7th, 2017. Information on ordering regalia is available from the UF Bookstore (392-0194). An order form may be found at at the bottom of the page. Payment is required when placing an order. Formal academic regalia is required for all faculty members attending commencement as a platform party member or as an escort for doctoral degree candidates. Faculty members serving as a marshal do NOT need to order academic regalia – a marshal robe is provided to all marshals, free of charge, for use at the commencement ceremonies.

Faculty Escorts: Candidates for Doctor of Philosophy, Doctor of Education and Doctor of Plant Medicine degrees will be assigned an official commencement escort. Faculty designated as escorts will receive an e-mail from the Office of the Provost with further details about responsibilities, assembly times and hooding instructions. This e-mail is generally sent two weeks prior to commencement. However, if you have a graduate student scheduled to graduate during this semester, please order your regalia on or before the July 7th, 2017 deadline.
