Honors Convocation and Commencement Ceremonies.

These ceremonies celebrate the culmination of achievement for students whose education and lives you have helped shape during their time here at UNH. Your attendance sends a strong message to the students that you support them and are proud of their accomplishments. They and their families will genuinely appreciate your participation.


Formal academic regalia, as determined by your highest degree and the institution at which it was earned, is required for both ceremonies.

If you do not own regalia, it may be rented or purchased through the independent vendor, University Cap and Gown by completing the online form here or by calling 978-686-4566.

The vendor will know what regalia is appropriate to your degree and institution. Faculty are responsible for all charges associated with the rental, purchase and shipping of regalia. 

The Commencement Office has limited quantities of regalia on-hand to borrow. For further details, please email commencement@unh.edu.
