Commencement Preparation

Dear Colleagues,

Commencement is a highlight of our academic year. You, our distinguished faculty, play an essential role in this culminating event for our graduating students. Fall commencements will be held on Saturday, December 14, with a graduate ceremony at 9 a.m. and an undergraduate ceremony at 2 p.m.

Appropriate academic attire is required for Commencement and is provided at no cost to faculty who submit a completed Faculty Academic Apparel order form. Unless you are instructed otherwise by your dean’s office, please submit your order on the Commencement website at:

The deadline to request academic apparel is October 30. All electronic orders will be confirmed via e-mail with an opportunity to make corrections. Requests for specific regalia received after the deadline may not be accommodated, but UIC regalia can be provided to allow you to participate in the ceremony.

If you have any questions regarding Commencement or academic apparel, please contact Nikki Andrae at Additional information can also be found at

We look forward to seeing you at our fall ceremonies to honor our new graduates.
