Student and Faculty Attire

Students are expected to wear regalia. Faculty are encouraged to attend and may march in a procession/recession. Those wishing to march in the procession and recession should assemble in a staging area to be identified for robing in regalia. Students and faculty will receive information on sizing of regalia and ordering for rental or purchase. Information will also be available for students wishing to order graduation announcement stationery. Faculty who already have regalia are welcome to wear it and do not need UofSC regalia.

We hope you will join us for the Convocation ceremony
in honor of our Class of 2021.

Challenge the conventional. Create the exceptional. No Limits.
