Cap & Gown


All ceremony participants are required to wear full academic regalia consisting of a traditional gown, medallion and mortarboard with tassel.  The ceremony will be outdoors with graduate and faculty seating exposed to the sun and wind.  Please wear appropriate clothing under your gown.  The ceremony stage is high and graduates will access it via open steps.  Please exercise caution when selecting footwear - high heels are not recommended.

There will be no place to leave items once the processional starts.  You should make arrangements for someone to be responsible for your valuables during the ceremony.  Bring only your cap and gown for line-up.  Check you cap, tassel and gown before arriving at the site.  Be sure to bring any pins or clips you may need to anchor your cap - in case there is a strong breeze at the ceremony site.
