Dress Protocol & Conduct

Dress Protocol & Conduct

Dress Protocol:

Graduates will wear caps and gowns (to be ordered by CHOIS) over dress clothes with dress shoes, dress boots, or dress cowboy boots (no sneakers/tennis shoes, or flip flops). Young men must wear dress shirts and slacks, tie optional. Young women must wear dresses or skirts. Please recognize that our gowns are polyester and the stage lights are hot. We do not recommend layers, suit jackets, or heavy clothing.  Please keep in mind that it gets very warm for the graduates during the two hours that they are on stage. No embellishments or personalization of caps and gowns will be permitted during the ceremony (with the exception of honor cords and Congressional Medals). This is mandatory for participation. The caps and gowns will belong to the graduates following the ceremony. The committee will order and deliver them to the graduates on graduation day. Please contact us if further clarification is needed.

 

Conduct:

We want the actions of each individual to honor the graduating class as a whole. While we recognize the uniqueness of each graduate, we have come together to graduate as a class. Please refrain from actions and attire which would draw attention to yourself and divert it from the rest of the graduates. Please contact us if further clarification is needed.
