Starting this year, grads will receive their gown and hat after convocation practice. This is to allow grads the time to take as many photos as they want with friends and family before the grad ceremony.
Grads must arrive at convocation dressed in their hat and gown, and return the gown 30 minutes after convocation is done. Grads keep the hat and any sashes/cords they receive.
Remember that the hat and gown are your responsibility. If the gown is damaged, the gown rental company will require you to pay for the damages.
We will not have any extra gowns or hats if you forget yours or damage yours.
Grads will not be allowed on stage for convocation if they do not have their hat and gown.
