If you plan on participating in any in-person commencement celebrations, an official cap, gown and tassel is required. A UC Irvine sash/stole is not a required part of cap & gown regalia, and therefore, is not sold by the UC Irvine Alumni Association. Sashes/stoles can be purchased separately from The Hill.

ALL SALES ARE FINAL. There are no returns or refunds allowed on regalia or membership packages.


For domestic orders, please allow a minimum of 2-3 weeks for order processing before your order is shipped. Once your order is shipped, your package should arrive within 5-7 business days, pending any service issues from the courier service. International order delivery timeframes are subject to customs as dictated by your government.

“I’m hearing about paid membership what is it?”

Great question! Similar to some of your undergraduate clubs which charge dues, UCIAA has paid levels above General Membership. While being a General Member gets you some benefits, being a paid Annual or Life Member gets you an even longer list of valuable resources and exclusive discounts.

“What are my membership dues for?”

UCIAA keeps alumni connected to the university and each other! Your paid membership makes a big impact in so many ways. When you purchase a membership, your dues support:

  • Alumni programming like networking receptions, fun social events and alumni career panels

  • Career resources like our flash mentorship platform, The Anteater Network

  • The creation of new alumni affinity chapters for you to connect with

“I still talk to my roomies 25 years later and love see where they are in their lives. My job did not even exist when I was in college, but I'm using pieces of what I learned in everything I do. Your career path is just the start of a journey - be open to the twists and turns. An hour of work is an hour of work - decide how you want to spend that hour. It's up to you!”
Michele Whiteaker '95
