In accordance with academic tradition, all degree candidates are robed in a black cap and gown. The tassel is worn on the right side of the cap until the degree is conferred.
There will not be a commencement rehearsal. To allow time for last-minute checks and instructions, degree candidates should assemble at their designated stations in the outside corridors on the East and West side of the Farris Center not later than 30 minutes before the start of the ceremony for your college.
Please note that the letter and number shown on your name card indicates whether you assemble on the EAST (E) or WEST (W) side and your position number in the degree line. It is most important that you be in the correct position in the appropriate degree line in order to be properly recognized during the ceremony. Students must arrive prior to the beginning of the procession in order to be seated. A faculty marshal will be on hand at each station to supervise line formation and lead the procession.
