Commencement is a formal academic event. Graduates must be dressed in the proper academic regalia of a cap, gown, stole (for baccalaureate recipients), and tassel in order to participate in the activities. Graduates are encouraged to obtain their caps and gowns two weeks 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, summa cum laude, military veteran) and tassels (Honors Program and Ambassadors) will be available in the Registrar's office the week of graduation and before 5:00 p.m. on the day of commencement. Honor cords and Ambassador Honor Society tassels for CDA graduates will be available in the LCSC-CDA office April 22-May 3.
Only approved LCSC honor cords and graduation regalia are appropriate for commencement. The approved list may be found in the Policies and Procedures manual section 5.308.
