The graduation ceremony is a time to celebrate your educational efforts; however, in keeping with the idea that this should be a dignified ceremony, we will conduct a formal graduation. Please adhere to the following guidelines.

  • a white dress shirt and ties, dark pants and dark shoes or
  • dress, skirt, or slacks and dress shoes. Dresses and skirts should be shorter than graduation gowns.
  • Tennis shoes and/or flip flops are not appropriate. Please choose footwear and heel heights appropriate for walking across the stage.
  • Caps should be worn so they sit level rather than on the back or to the side of the head.
  • In respect for each graduate and their families, we ask spectators and degree candidates remain seated.
  • Degree candidates and their guests should not participate in disruptive behavior until the last graduate walks across the stage. Noisemakers, beach balls, balloons and other items that could disrupt the ceremony will not be tolerated.


The Senior Legacy Fund was established as a way for graduates to leave their mark on campus for generations of Spartans to come. By contributing to the Senior Legacy Fund in the amount of your graduation year ($20.22), you can enhance the USC Upstate experience and help provide much-needed support for campus projects. As a symbol of your commitment to those who come after, the USC Upstate Alumni Association will provide an alumni medallion for all those who help their fellow Spartans move Up. together, which will be mailed to the address provided when you make your online gift. 

Learn more about the Senior Legacy Fund and the alumni medallion.
