Graduation Walk at UNF

What is Graduation Walk?

Graduation Walk is not a traditional graduation ceremony, but provides graduates an opportunity to cross the stage and be recognized while their name is read aloud in the presence of their guests. There will be professional photo opportunities for graduates and accompanying guests. Each graduate will receive a diploma cover prior to crossing the stage. We encourage graduates awaiting their stage-walk and their guests to cheer on other graduates.

When and Where is Graduation Walk?

For the Fall Class of 2021: Graduation Walk will be held on Friday, December 17 in the UNF Arena, Building 34. Graduates are scheduled by college. College event schedule will be posted as soon as possible. 


Should graduates wear a cap and gown?

Cap and gown are encouraged for the Graduation Walk experience, but not required. The deadline for ordering regalia is November 12, 2021. If you would like to order regalia, please visit the Herff Jones Graduation website to place your order. If you chose not to wear regalia, we ask those attending Graduation Walk to wear appropriate professional attire.

How do I participate?

Fall 2021 graduates should make sure they have applied for graduation through myWings.  To participate in the upcoming Graduation Walk, please make sure that you have selected YES for the ceremony on your graduation application.
