Failure to apply for graduation by the advertised deadline may affect your ability to graduate, result in receiving a reduced number of guest tickets for commencement, and can result in the delay of receiving your diploma. Refer to the Academic Calendar for grad application deadlines.
Commencement takes place in the UNF Arena, building 34. Graduates will be able to check-in and line up for the processional an hour and a half early. You must use the side entrance at the east side of the Field House, Bldg. 26, near Lot 34. Refer to the commencement homepage for ceremony dates and times.
All graduates, faculty, staff, vendors and guests will be screened by metal detectors and all bags will be checked upon each entry into the Field House and the Arena. Plan accordingly and arrive early to ensure adequate time for these procedures.
Undergraduates eligible to graduate with Latin Honors, will be permitted to purchase a gold honor cord from the UNF Bookstore when they pick up their cap and rental gown. Students do not need to pre-order their Latin Honor cord. The UNF Bookstore has the cords in stock. At the time of the regalia pick up date, the UNF Bookstore will have record of undergraduates who qualify to purchase a Latin Honors cord. Only those students who are eligible for Latin Honors may purchase an honor cord.
Cords, stoles, etc. for honors organizations are NOT available at the UNF Bookstore. You must contact your organization's faculty advisor for ordering information.
