Undergrad students’ tassels should correspond to the students’ area of study

Undergrad tassels are worn on the right initially. Change them to the left after walking across the stage to receive your diploma cover (or you will be prompted when to change your tassel)

Graduate students wear their tassels to the left throughout

See commencement website for the list of

things to remember
Things To Remember
  • Make sure you have your name card/reader card with you

Write your e-mail address on the BACK of your name/reader card so the photographer can send your proofs electronically. Reader cards are distributed at ceremony venues/facilities

  • Carry your name/reader card with you when it’s your turn to walk across the stage. It’s the only way anyone will know who you are. Graduate’s names are NOT read from a list.
  • Don’t forget to return your gown

There will be a covered truck for depositing your caps and gowns as you exit the ceremony facility


We wish the best in all of your future endeavors
