Academic Attire: What to Wear When

Baccalaureate: Attire for this event is the black robe only.  Students are not required to wear their cap or hood. 

Commencement: Student can bring their academic attire (robe, hood, cap and tassle) to the East Room and people will be there to assist in dressing you correctly.  Please steam or iron your robe in advance, be very careful and use a low setting.  Men & women, we suggest you wear something with buttons (dress shirt for men) under your robe so the hood can be anchored to a button.  We will have safety pins and bobby pins available in the East Room.
