In accordance with custom, students must wear their cap and gown. Graduate students wear their cap and gown without the hood.
This should depend upon your plans after the ceremonies. However, we would suggest that you wear something comfortable, but tasteful. For men, slacks, lightweight dress shirt and dark shoes would be appropriate. For women, you have a broad range of choices. Slacks are certainly acceptable. Please wear comfortable shoes! The Superdome is big and there is a lot of walking!
Bachelor's degree candidates - the tassel should be worn on the right until the degree is conferred. Graduate degree candidates the tassel should be worn on the left.
