Caps and gowns for each School and College are sold at the UT Arlington Bookstore. Students graduating with a bachelor's degree must purchase or order their cap and gown NO LESS THAN ONE MONTH prior to commencement to ensure that their custom tassels arrive in time for the ceremony.
In accordance with tradition, all participants in commencement ceremonies are expected to dress in full academic regalia with the exception of the keynote speaker. Appropriate business attire should be worn underneath the gowns.
Any students graduating with honors will be provided with an honors cord upon check-in at the ceremony. You will not need to purchase this from the bookstore.
All students who attempted the FE Exam will be provided with a cord. There is no grade requirement on the FE to receive this cord.
All students who completed a co-op or internship will be provided with a cord. Pick up your cord in Nedderman Hall room 242 beginning one month prior to commencement.
