Universiti Sarawak Malaysia (Unimas) has imposed a strict dress code at its graduation ceremony that began on Nov 14 and ends tomorrow, barring female graduates from wearing thin material, tight-fitting clothes and revealing attires.
Female graduates should only wear clothes that cover their bodies all the way from the neck to the ankles. These can be baju kurung, long dresses, long skirts and long-sleeved and high-neck blouses.
"Short skirts, slippers and sandals are not allowed. Thin, tight and revealing clothes are not allowed," Unimas stated in its website.
Those who fail to observe this dress code will need to change to suitable attires, which the university will provide them, at a fee of RM50 a person.
"Graduates not adhering to the dress code will be asked to change into the clothing provided and will be charged a renting fee of RM50 per piece.
"Payment must be made before the collection of the Certificate and Transcript," the Unimas posting says.
Male graduates are barred from wearing jeans. They should keep their hair short and neat, and wear only lounge suit or the national attire.
