The Florida Board of Governors has directed UCF and all state universities to develop alternate plans for fall commencement ceremonies. While UCF will be unable to host a traditional face-to-face ceremony for our fall graduates in December, we are committed to ensuring that our students’ accomplishments are celebrated.
We understand that commencement ceremonies are a major milestone in the lives of our graduates and the loved ones who have supported them on their education journey. UCF is exploring additional ways to improve our virtual ceremonies to include memorable experiences for graduates.
Cap and gown rentals continue to be available for students who would like to take photos in their gowns. Alternatively, Herff Jones will refund students who prefer to cancel their cap and gown order completely.
We will share more information about commencement and reimbursements as soon as it’s available.
