School of Nursing Convocation Ceremony

  • Convocation is a celebration and we know that you will want to dress for the occasion. Please consider that when you are on the stage, audience members will be below you and looking up. Be mindful of any exposed skin and of your posture when choosing your graduation outfit.

  • Academic Regalia (cap and gown, etc.) is not worn at this ceremony.

  • Wear nice, modest attire. No shorts/jeans. Be mindful of dress/skirt lengths as you will not be wearing your regalia over your clothes as would be done at the Health Sciences Commencement.

  • Shoes: Consider heel heights as you select your shoes for the day. You will find that you are doing a lot of walking and/or standing throughout the day; so choose wisely.
