USQ Academic dress

At 2021 graduation celebrations and ceremonies, graduates will wear COVID Safe simplified USQ academic dress. All graduates will wear either a Doctoral/Masters/Bachelor gown, a Doctoral/Masters fully-lined hood or partially-lined Bachelor hood (regardless of academic program), and a Doctoral bonnet with tasselled chord or mortarboard.

Your mortarboard or Doctoral bonnet with chord is provided as a giveaway memento of your Celebration.

We encourage you to wear smart attire rather than casual clothing or casual footwear (thongs or sneakers). Academic dress can be quite warm, so keep this in mind when selecting your clothing for the day.

Your loan of academic dress for your ceremony is included in your AUD150 Ceremony Fee, and subject to the following conditions:

  • academic dress cannot be removed from the graduation ceremony venue for any reason
  • academic dress must be returned within an hour of the conclusion of the graduation ceremony, or an additional hire charge/replacement fee may be applicable
  • a charge for cleaning or repairs may be applied if the gown is returned in a soiled or damaged condition
  • items of academic dress not returned, or returned in a significantly damaged condition that cannot be repaired, will incur a fee for the full replacement value of the gown, and hood
