Graduation Gowns, Caps & Tassels

ACC rents graduation gowns and hoods for graduates. If you attend grad, you’ll also get a cap and 2017 tassel to keep. 

If you’re not coming to the BBQ Bash, ensure you arrive at the UCT Pavilion by 12:30 pm on grad day. This gives you plenty of time to get your gown, attach the hood, take photos with your class and faculty and begin celebrating your day.

Please note that you must return your gown & hood after the graduation ceremony. A $200 charge will be added to your account if you don’t return your gown & hood.

Practical Nursing, Police Studies & Culinary Arts grads: you will wear your uniforms - but you still must register to attend Grad. 


Credentials & transcript

If you've completed all courses required for graduation, you'll be able to pick up your credential & final transcript when you return your gown in the UCT Pavilion. If you are waiting on a final mark, (often Practicum), we’ll mail you your credential & transcript as soon as we have all marks entered.
