How to Wear Graduation Cap and Gown
(“Pomp and Circumstance March no.1”) – Make sure that your
graduation regalia is in order. We want you to look sharp
for all those pictures. Your robe should be closed at the neck and your cap worn parallel to the floor and place your tassel on the front left-hand side. A bobby pin can be handy for keeping your cap in place. Your hood will be placed on you after receiving your diploma on stage. The proper way to carry your hood is to fold it in half lengthwise, making sure that the tie cord is unhooked. Drape the hood over the left forearm with the top velvet band towards the wrist. You may find it helpful to bring a safety pin for securing your hood to your robe once you’ve been hooded. Congratulations again
and enjoy the ceremony.
