Ordering Regalia: Regalia orders will be accepted through October 30, 2019. Information on ordering regalia is available from the UF Bookstore (392-0194). An order form can be found here: https://commencement.ufl.edu/pdf/Faculty%20Order%20Fall%202019.pdf. 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 or hooding faculty member 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, Doctor of Physical Therapy and Doctor of Plant Medicine degrees will invite an official commencement escort. Candidates for Doctor of Audiology, Doctor of Business Administration, Doctor of Nursing Practice, and PharmD will be hooded by designated faculty members of that program. Faculty designated as escorts or hooders 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 three 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 October 30, 2019 deadline.
