Your graduation invitation
The first thing you need to do is respond to your invitation, even if you've already made your mind up about not attending the ceremony.
Visit the UTAMU webpage for details about your options – including what happens if you defer or decline.
If you register to attend your graduation ceremony, you must follow the points below.
Order your academic regalia
Come to UTAMU Campus to order your gown (Small, Medium or Large).
It's compulsory for all graduates to wear academic regalia applicable (hat and gown with coloured sash) to the degree they're being awarded at the ceremony. No regalia means no ceremony, sorry. A branded UTAMU graduation Gown will be provided and you can collect it from our campus in Bugolobi a few days before the Graduation.

As a graduate, you get one ticket for yourself and two free tickets for guests.
This webpage has information about how to collect tickets.
Photography is a big part of every graduation, with a professional photographer in attendance before, during and after the ceremony. Due to COVID-19 SOP, you will not be allowed to come with your photographer.
You should be able to get photographers at the graduation venue.
At the ceremony
To make your graduation day go as smoothly as possible, you'll need to do a little forward planning.
- You will sit according to your degree/ diploma/ certificate group.
- Certificates and academic transcripts will be ready for you to collect on the graduation day.
CLEARING WITH FINANCE
Make sure that you clear your fees to zero balance. No student will be allowed to graduate with any outstanding fees balance.
