The University’s preferred provider of academic dress is GFP Graduations. They will be on campus during the graduations period for you to collect your regalia. They will also be at the ceremonies to help you put on your regalia correctly.

You can obtain your academic dress from another supplier as long as the academic dress complies with the University's Statute 11. If you decide to order your regalia through another supplier, it is your responsibility to ensure it meets the UWA academic dress requirements.

If you're ordering your academic dress from GFP, go to the UWA On-line Academic Dress Ordering Service and log-in with your UWA Student ID and enter your date of birth in the format DDMMYYYY in the password field.

All graduands are required to wear a gown, a hood and a trencher cap (often referred to as a mortar board). Academic dress prices vary according to the award that is being conferred. Full details, including when and where to collect your regalia can be found on the Academic Dress Ordering Service website under the FAQs link. You'll also receive an email from the Graduations Team about collecting your regalia closer to the time of your ceremony. When you go to collect your regalia, bring along your student card or photo identification. Alternatively complete the authorisation form on the GFP FAQ website for some else to collect your regalia on your behalf.
