Gowns

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

 

Online gown rentals for spring convocation will be available in August 30, 2017.   You may also rent a gown at TCU onsite at the times listed below.  We encourage graduands to pick up their gowns early to avoid long lines on the day of their ceremony.

Graduands who attend the Convocation ceremony are required to wear proper academic dress. Graduands must obtain the hood for the degree they are receiving, not for a degree they may already hold.

  • 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. If brought to the assembly area, they will be collected by a staff member and taken backstage to a dressing room at TCU Place.
  • Belongings left in the assembly area must be retrieved from a backstage dressing room immediately after the ceremony or they will be taken to the “lost and found” at TCU Place.
