On your graduation day, you will be required to wear USQ academic dress as per the Award Eligibility and Graduation Policy (Academic Dress Schedule).
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 gowning for your ceremony is included within your 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 to the location where it was provided 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 for the gown, hood/stole and headwear.
