If a valid UHCL email address is available via the graduate's E-services account, the photographer will email participating graduates a link to the commencement photograph proofs.


UHCL offers custom graduation caps and gowns. Please contact the UHCL Campus Store to order these items or for more information. Please wear the provided regalia (caps and gowns) to commencement. Please review the UHCL How to Wear Your Regalia instructional video on how to wear the regalia and/or master's hood (for graduate students). Information on donating regalia for future graduates can be found on the Gowns for Grads program webpage.

We recommend wearing comfortable shoes since graduates are on their feet for extended periods of time. Please remember this celebration is a formal ceremony and nice attire under the regalia is recommended.
