In observance of tradition, all participants in commencement ceremonies will wear full academic regalia, consisting of a traditional gown with SDSU medallion and a mortarboard with red and black tassel. All master’s degree candidates will wear black tassels. Doctoral candidates will wear gold tassels.
Postgraduate candidates will also wear hoods lined with the university colors of red and black. In addition, colored velvet stripes will indicate disciplines. The hood is worn with the long point of the shell to the rear. SDSU bachelor’s degree candidates do not wear hoods.
Full academic regalia for all bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral degree candidates will be available for purchase at GradFest, March 21-23 from 9:30 a.m.-7 p.m. at Montezuma Hall in the Conrad Prebys Aztec Student Union. You will also be given an opportunity to donate $10 to the Class of 2017 Endowed Scholarship for students and receive a red and white legacy cord to wear proudly on commencement day.
