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 https://commencement.ufl.edu/regalia 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.
