Gowns

You need the right gown and hood before the time of assembly. 

Online gown rentals are now closed. If you forget to rent a gown, you can rent one on site 1.5 hours prior to your ceremony at Merlis Belsher Place onsite, the day of your ceremony.  We encourage graduands to pick up their gowns early on the day of their ceremony to avoid long lines.

  • It is encouraged that you return your gown at the end of the day of your graduation ceremony. Gowns must be returned by Friday June 10 at noon. Students who do not return their gowns by June 10 at noon will be charged the full retail price of unreturned gowns.

Graduands who attend the Convocation ceremony are required to wear regalia. First Nation, Metis and Inuit students are invited to wear their traditional regalia over academic regalia or in place of it. We ask that graduands do not alter the academic regalia (gown or hood) as it represents your academic achievement

All graduands must obtain a hood, with the exception of students graduating with a certificate. The hood must be for the credential you are receiving on the day of that ceremony, not for a degree you may already hold. Be sure to obtain a gown and hood prior to the time of assembly. Gowns and hoods are available on a non-refundable rental basis. If you have questions please contact convocation@usask.ca

  • Boutonnieres and corsages may not be worn on the academic dress.
  • Flowers are not suitable for the academic dress or the ceremony and should be held in reserve for celebrations after the ceremony.
  • It is recommended that no money or valuables be brought to the assembly area.
  • Purses, bags, etc. are not to be carried during the ceremony.
