GRADUATION ATTIRE FOR CANDIDATES

The Sablay is worn by men over plain or ecru-colored barong, and black pants, and by women over white or ecru-colored dress, mid calf to ankle length. The dress should have sleeves matched with closed black shoes. Being an academic costume, the sablay should be worn only with academic regalia (medallions for academic achievement) and a minimum jewelry. Corsages and leis are not part of the academic costume and therefore they should not be worn with the sablay during the ceremony.

 

Check the link below for the illustration of proper graduation attire:(from the Handbook or Protocol in the University of the Philippines: Academic Costume, Section 1.6, pages 7-9)

 

The protocol in wearing the UP Sablay will be strictly enforced during the UPOU Commencement Exercises. Graduates who fail to follow the said protocol will not be allowed to join the processional.
