Cap & Gown
The University of Florida Bookstores is your official location to order your cap & gown for participating in UF's commencement ceremonies. If you are registered to graduate with UF for the current term, currently Spring 2016, you can log into Gator 1 Central and order your cap & gown online.
Requirements & Instructions
To be eligible to order a cap & gown for participating in UF's commencement ceremonies, you must be registered to graduate for the current term. If you have registered, when you log into Gator 1 Central you will be informed that you are eligible to order a cap & gown. If you did not register to graduate for the current term, but should have, you will need to read and complete a late degree application.
You will be required to provide height and weight information to make sure that you receive the appropriate gown. You will also have an option to enter a phonetic spelling of your name to assist the commencement presenters with pronunciation. Doctoral candidates are required to have a hood for the ceremony. Doctoral candidates will have the option of renting a hood which will need to be returned with the gown or purchasing a hood that will be yours to keep.
The deadline to order your cap & gown for the Spring 2016 term is Friday, February 26th, 2016. All orders placed after this deadline will incur a late fee of $10.00.
