Academic Dress & Regalia

Commencement is a formal academic event. Graduates must be in proper academic regalia (cap, gown, stole and tassel) in order to participate in the activities. Graduates must pick up their caps and gowns before the day of the ceremony.

The tassel is worn on the right side of the mortarboard (cap) prior to the degree being conferred. The president will instruct you to move the tassel to the left side after the degrees have been conferred.

Honor cords (President’s Honors, Cum Laude, Magna Cum Laude, and Summa Cum Laude) and tassels (Honors Program and Ambassadors) will be distributed at rehearsal.

Only the official LCSC stole and honor cords are approved for commencement.
