Caps, Gowns, Hoods
All participants dress for commencement according to traditions stemming from the world’s oldest universities. The regalia worn by graduates and faculty members signifies the various degrees, disciplines, and institutions of the members of the academic procession and is an outward sign of membership in the university community.
Regalia requirements differ for degrees and schools. Candidates can visit the UTEP Bookstore to purchase regalia and announcements.
