Regalia Information

Graduates participating in the commencement ceremonies are required to wear official UCF regalia available exclusively through the UCF Bookstore.

  • In-store cap and gown ordering:
    • will take place February 14-16 from 11:00 am to 4:00 pm at the UCF Bookstore, John T. Washington Center location.
  • Online cap and gown ordering:

There is a late deadline for regalia of March 31, 2023. All rental orders placed after March 24 will be assessed a rush fee. Graduates are encouraged to order their cap and gowns sooner rather than later to allow ample time for your order to be delivered to your home. If you have any questions, please contact the UCF Bookstore at 407-882-0365.

Graduates who ordered their official academic regalia on or before March 31 may pick up their reader cards and tickets at the UCF FAIRWINDS Alumni Center from April 26-28.

Graduates who did NOT preorder their official academic regalia through Herff Jones before the deadline can still rent regalia onsite at the UCF FAIRWINDS Alumni Center, along with picking up their reader card and guest tickets April 24-25.

Note: Guest tickets and reader cards will only be distributed to graduates with regalia rental orders and who filed an Intent to Graduate application on time. Availability of sizes for official regalia cannot be guaranteed after April 28. Contact the Barnes & Noble at UCF Bookstore for any regalia request after April 28.

Herff Jones also offers other commencement products — like graduation announcements, class rings and nursing pins — which can be viewed and purchased online.

The tassel on a graduate’s cap must be their college tassel and not the black and gold souvenir tassel. Note: Baccalaureate degree candidates wear tassels on the right. Graduate degree candidates wear tassels on the left.

Returning Regalia

It is highly encouraged that graduates return rented regalia immediately following your commencement ceremony to the Barnes & Noble @ UCF Bookstore located next to the Addition Financial Arena or by the end of business day on Saturday May 6, 2023. Bachelor’s and master’s graduates are allowed to keep the cap and tassel ONLY. A late fee of $40.00 will be assessed between Monday, May 8, 2023, and Friday, May 12, 2023, with the return of the gown. Credit cards will be charged full price for any regalia not returned by Monday, May 15, 2023 ($450.00 for bachelor’s, $750.00 for master’s and $1,350.00 for doctoral regalia).
