Cap Decorating Rules

For bachelor’s and master’s degree candidates, the top of the cap may be decorated. The decoration must lay flat against the cap and extend no higher than the cap button to prevent obstructing the view of others. Language on decorated caps must be appropriate.

The tassel on a graduate’s cap must be their college tassel and not the black and gold souvenir tassel.

Doctoral tams must be returned in original condition, or a fee will be charged.

The university reserves the right to request that graduates change inappropriate attire before they will be allowed to participate in the commencement ceremony
