Make your graduation day run as smoothly as possible, here is our guide to making it a memorable day.

  • Check the graduation ceremony time and date sent to you by the Sydney University Graduation Department before booking your hire to make sure the appropriate fitting appointment is made.
  • Ensure you have written the correct degree title and faculty from which you are graduating so that the correct hood or stole can be provided at your fitting.
  • Book before the week of your graduation ceremony to secure the cheapest price for your regalia hire and if you have a USU Rewards membership use your own USU Rewards membership number to get a 10% discount on your hire and any purchases made from USYD STORE.
  • The dress code for the graduation ceremony is business and cocktail attire or semi-formal, depending on your personal preference. Come dressed in the outfit you are wearing to the ceremony if your fitting is the day of your graduation, as you made need to be redressed after changing (exception to day before fittings).
  • Make sure you have some form of ID (Student ID, licence etc.) with you when collecting your graduation regalia.
  • Allow enough time to arrive at USYD STORE for your fitting and to check in before your ceremony with the Graduations Department tent, located on the grass next to the Great Hall.
