    Graduate Student Attire

    Cap, gown and appropriate hood can be purchased directly from the UA Bookstore, either in person or online. Stoles of gratitude are optional. OSC will provide your college-specific tassel when you check in on the day of the commencement ceremony. The most important piece is the regalia hood, where the dean or your faculty advisor will ceremonially put it on you. Since Optical Sciences does not have a designated hood color, students usually select orange (for engineering) or science gold (for science).
