How should you dress for a high school graduation?
For most high schools, a pair of dress slacks and a button down, with or without a tie, or polo shirt are acceptable attire for male graduation guests. Don’t wear jeans, T-shirts, shorts or other casual attire and avoid any sort of clothing that would draw undue attention — the attention should be on the graduates.
What do you wear under regalia?
Women are best wearing either dress pants or a shorter skirt underneath the gown, while men should choose khakis or dark-colored dress pants. Avoid brightly coloured bottoms if you choose to wear dress pants or a longer skirt, as they can be seen below the hem of the gown and stick to darker colours.
What GPA do you need to get cords?
Generally, a student with a cumulative GPA of around 3.5 is considered to graduate with honors, or Cum laude. A variably higher GPA is required to graduate Magna cum laude, and depending on the school, a near 4.0 GPA or above is required forSumma cum laude graduates.
How many graduation cords can you wear?
The good news is that you don’t have to choose between a stole/sash and a cord(s); you can wear a cord and a stole/sash together and you can wear more than one cord. However, it’s not practical to wear more than one sash/stole, though some graduates may do it.
How many stoles can you wear at graduation?
A graduation cord can represent recognition by an honors society or demonstrate membership of an organization or club. The main difference is that while a graduate can wear more than one graduation cord, they can only wear one graduation stole.
Can you wear jeans to a graduation as a guest?
If the invitation doesn’t specifically state the dress code, go with a nice dress or skirt/slacks with a blouse combination. It’s a safe bet and you’ll always feel more comfortable dressed up than dressed down. Don’t wear jeans!
What do girls wear for their high school graduation?
Dresses. Girls should wear dresses or skirts with a blouse in seasonal colors (light hues or pastels) and materials, like silk and linen. Since you’ll have pictures taken without your graduation gown, the skirt should cover your knees—in keeping with the formality of the occasion.
What should you not wear to graduation?
Being Underdressed or Overdressed Clothes that are too formal, or not formal enough, will make you feel out of place when you should feel relaxed. Wearing jeans to your college graduation probably isn’t a smart choice, but a ball gown isn’t quite right, either. Aim for business or business casual for the ceremony.
Do graduation pins go on the gown?
Pin the hood to the gown, using a safety pin on each shoulder. Place the pin about two inches from the edge of the hood closest to the student’s neck.
Are you supposed to wear pins at graduation?
Adjust the mortarboard so that it’s parallel to the ground — don’t wear it to the side or to the back. You may need to use some bobby pins or clips to keep it securely on your head.
What side does the tassel go on before graduation?
All tassels are to start on the right side of the cap for undergraduate students. During the ceremony, students will move the tassel to the left when instructed.
