So you’re graduating and are getting ready to throw your cap in the air but that’s not all! You want to make sure that your look is as fabulous as possible so you’ll need to know how everything should be worn. After all, it’s not just any graduation ceremony going on, it’s yours!
Okay so let’s start with the big question, which side does the tassel go on at graduation? Many people wonder about this and it can be a little confusing.
Wearing your graduation tassel on the right side of your cap is customary if you are graduating from high school. The placement is different when you are having a degree as your tassel should be placed on the left side of your cap if you are graduating from college or university.
Tassels may seem like a small detail, but it’s important that yours is easily seen and recognizable by your graduation ceremony attendees.
When college graduates receive their degrees, they wear their tassels on the right side until after the degree is conferred, then move it to the left side.
Once you have an undergraduate degree, continue to keep your tassel on the left side as this signifies that you have already obtained a degree and moved your tassel from right to left.
This also holds true for more advanced degrees, like Masters and Doctorate. Once you’ve moved your tassel to the left side during graduation, it remains there for all future ceremonies.
As your graduation day approaches, it’s also important to consider how you will celebrate this significant milestone. This may include working with your family to plan a graduation party or attending an event with friends and classmates. Whatever you choose, be sure to enjoy this special occasion and savour all the hard work you’ve put in over the years. Congratulations on your graduation!
