Dress Code Guidelines for Graduates

ALL graduates must wear the authorized graduation cap, gown, and tassel. In addition, graduates may wear up to two honor cords and two academic medals (if earned). Students should not add any other accessories, decorations, or carry any placards, posters or any other paraphernalia that might distract from the ceremony.

Dress attire under the gown should comply with all school dress code guidelines and should reflect the importance and dignity of the occasion (i.e. dress shirts and slacks with dress shoes or dresses/dress attire and dress shoes). The processional is down the Southwest and Southeast stairs, which are steep and lengthy (66 stairs and no railing). Ladies should avoid shoes that have more than a 3" heel.

Please be aware that once we leave the school you will not be allowed to re-enter.  Therefore, you are advised not to bring a purse, backpack, etc. that day or leave it locked in your car.

Graduates must not engage in any acts of rowdiness, noisy behavior, or misconduct.  Graduates must conduct themselves properly before, during, and immediately following the ceremony so the ceremony will be meaningful to everyone in attendance.
