What to Wear

The Ceremonies for the Presentation of Graduates are formal and graduands to be presented to the Chancellor are required to wear academic dress, that is, the University Graduate Gown with appropriate Faculty Hood and Mortar Board where applicable. The wearing of corsages and boutonnieres is NOT permitted. In keeping with the formal nature of this activity, and the standards expected, ladies, in particular, are reminded that modest dress is expected. Very low cut necklines with exposed cleavages, exposed stomachs/navels etc. or any other forms of dress deemed by the University to be unsuitable could take away your opportunity to be presented to the Chancellor.

Presentees for Non-Degree Awards will wear the Red Undergraduate Gown without Faculty Hood; while presentees for Non-Degree Awards who are also Graduates of the UWI and other Universities should wear the Gown and Hood of the Faculties from which they received their first degrees. In addition, the gown should be worn over appropriate attire as follows:

Women:                 

White Dresses or White Suits and Black Shoes
