Instructions to order your White Coat

White Coats have been generously donated by Gill Podiatry. White coats will be presented to you at the White Coat Ceremony. 

Each student must provide their coat size to KSUCPM. Please complete this form so we can order your numerical size.

Submit Your White Coat Size


Name Pronunciation Form

At the White Coat Ceremony, you will receive a card with your name. You will hand this card to a reader during the ceremony so that your name can be announced as you cross the stage.

Your name will be pronounced phonetically. Phonetic pronunciation of your first and last names is saying them as they sound, not as they are written. Here is an example: John Barowski (John Ba-ROFF-skee) and Emily Nguyen (Emily WIN).

We kindly request you complete the pronunciation form. Your input will allow us to properly pronounce your name during the white coat ceremony.

Please Note: KSUCPM does not sell white coats. Students will need to purchase any additional white coats themselves at a uniform shop or online
