Countdown to Cap and Gown - Fall 2021 Ceremony


Congratulations! All your hard work over the past few years is about to pay off with your graduation from college. And there's nothing like walking across that stage to get your diploma!

But first, UAH would like to help you celebrate your major milestone by inviting you to this semester's Countdown to Cap and Gown, which will be held in the Charger Union - University Bookstore.

Event Dates

Wednesday, September 29, 11:00am-2:00pm

Friday, October 1, 11:00am-2:00pm


Commencement for Fall 2021 will be held December 13, and possibly December 14.

You will receive your Phase I email in early September. This email is asking if you plan on participating in the Fall 2021 ceremony. For Phase II, you will receive another email that confirms your specific ceremony time. You will also have the chance to add a gradution quote that will appear on the screen as you walk across the stage.

Beginning September 20, 2021, you can purchase your cap & gown in person at the UAH Bookstore, open Monday through Friday 8:30am-5:00pm. You can also purchase online at Oak Hall. The last day to purchase regalia online for Bachelor and Master students is November 21, 2021. Doctoral Students have two deadlines: Regalia Rental (October 25, 2021); Regalia Purchase (November 11, 2021)

You can purchase announcements online through Balfour. A Balfour representative will also be available at the Countdown to Cap & Gown events.

Fall 2021 candidates will receive their diplomas in the mail in January or February 2022. Information for Fall candidates about verifying your mailing address will be sent to your UAH email account in January.
