·Master Student Keeper Cap, Gown, Tassel and Hood   -  $53.00  

ABOUT YOUR REGALIA 

·CCNY undergraduate students do not wear hoods.

·CCNY caps have tassels in the school colors. 

·CCNY graduate students wear hoods colored according to their degree. 

Wear your academic robe closed.  Your cap should be centered on your head with the mortarboard (the top) flat, not tilted.  Caps tend to slip; hairpins will help.  For undergraduates, the tassel on your cap should be worn in front on the right side; they will be switched to the left when the Dean requests that you do so at the end of the ceremony.  The cap and gown are yours to keep.
