Student Dress Code

Depending on the graduating student’s lifestyle, graduates will wear academic regalia, Dress Blues, or the dress uniform of their service if they are an active duty service member, Reservist, or National Guard. If you are in doubt as to which uniform is prescribed, verify with the senior ranking member of the ROTC unit for your service.

Corps uniforms, pins, and laundering, pressing, and tailoring services are available at the Uniform Store. Corps graduates may wear academic honor society medallions, ribbons, badges, honor cords, and/or other awards.

Academic regalia is ordered at Grad Finale in March from Jostens. Academic regalia orders and pickup are coordinated by the University Bookstore. Graduates wearing academic regalia are required to wear appropriate business-casual attire underneath academic regalia. During the Commencement ceremony, caps/mortarboards are removed by all students for the National Anthem. Students should plan accordingly if they intend to pin their caps on. Students wearing academic regalia are not permitted to decorate their caps in any way.
