Cap, Gown, and Announcements
Cap and Gown
Commencement is a grand celebration of community and your success as each student begins their journey beyond degree completion at the University of West Georgia. We celebrate you and all of your accomplishments. In that vein, guidelines for appropriate cords and stoles can be found in the recommendations of the various entities that provide them, such as for Honors. Should you be interested in specifics regarding attire, the student code of conduct outlines the behavior and attire that are acceptable to be displayed as part of the academic regalia at commencement.
All students participating Commencement Ceremonies are required to wear a cap and gown. Students who order their cap and gown through Herff Jones should receive their order at the address provided when completing their order. Students should expect to receive their order within 2-3 weeks. The Summer 2022 deadline to order from Herff Jones is Friday, July 1, 2022. A limited number of caps and gowns may be purchased directly through the UWG Bookstore.
Graduation announcements are available to order through UWG Print Services. Announcement orders to be shipped must be placed by Friday, July 1, 2022. Announcement orders to be picked up on campus must be placed by Friday, July 8, 2022.
