What do I need to bring on Graduation Day?

  • Buisness Attire
  • Your Cap and Gown
  • Your Photo ID

Leave all personal items, including phones and cameras with trusted family or friends before the procession begins.

Appropriate Dress

Graduates must wear cap and gown. To make sure you have the right regalia please order from here. All candidates wear the tassel on the right side until your degree is awarded.

Only stoles and cords from recognized GSW student organizations and honor societies may be worn. (See list of approved organizations and societies.) Contact your organization's adviser for information on receiving your cord or stole.

Under your cap and gown, nothing is to be worn high on the neck nor should you wear a collar overlapping the robe.

  • Women should wear dresses, skirts, or dark pants. The shoes should be dark.
  • Men are to wear dress shirts, ties, dark slacks, dark socks, and dark shoes.

Recognition for Honors

Only undergraduates who have earned 30 credit hours of the baccalaureate degree at GSW are eligible for Honors recognition. However, all coursework taken at all accredited colleges and universities is counted in figuring your Honors GPA, even if the credits did not transfer.

  • Graduation cum laude requires a cumulative GPA of 3.5.
  • Graduation magna cum laude requires a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.7.
  • Graduation summa cum laude requires a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.9.
