Graduation is a formal occasion. Graduates should wear dark shoes, dresses or appropriate suits with their caps and gowns. Note: As the ceremony takes place on the athletic field, it is suggested that graduates refrain from wearing high heel shoes.
Graduates typically wear tassels on the right front side before degrees are conferred.
Graduation stoles are permitted only for Phi Theta Kappa members. No other stoles are permitted.
NOTE: Diploma covers, not actual diplomas, are given out during the graduation ceremony. Graduates will be receiving diplomas by the end of the next semester. Notifications will be sent to students that their diplomas are ready for pick up.
USE OF CELL PHONES: As a courtesy to our graduates and guests, please turn off all cell phones, pagers and any other noise-making electronic devices during the Commencement Ceremony. Absolutely NO SELFIES while walking across the stage.
