Please note that graduands who are not properly robed will not be allowed into the main hall.

Rather they will be expected to sit in the Gallery. The Faculty Officers with designated UIDLC Heads of Units will be seated with the graduands to ensure orderliness during the ceremony.

The tassels (cord) of the caps should be worn to the right for the First Degree Graduands and they will be required to move the tassels from left to right, at a point in time during the ceremony, when the Vice Chancellor declares: “I admit you all”.

This signifies their admission into the body of graduates of the University of Ibadan.

Higher Degree recipients should wear their tassels to the left since they are already First Degree Holders.
