Academic regalia for the 208th Commencement Ceremony will be available for purchase either online or at the UVM Bookstore beginning Thursday, December 1. Pre-orders are not necessary.
Caps and gowns are made of Oak Hall’s GreenWeaver material, a lightweight polyester-like material made from 23 post-consumer recycled plastic bottles. If you require special gown sizing, please contact the Bookstore to assure that you will have a gown that fits you.
To participate in December 2011 Commencement ceremonies, a complete outfit is required for all degree candidates (Bachelor’s, Master’s and Doctoral).
