Before you pay for the rent, or if you bought it, check everything from your cap & gown to other accessories like the tassel, cap, hoods, cords and honor stoles. The accessory depends on the type of graduation ceremony you have. College graduation ceremonies have graduation cap & gown that has hoods that define your degree. The honor chords may symbolize the level of your average that you belong.

When you wear your gown, you need to wear it just the same way you do with your jacket. You have to zip the gown all the way up to securely fasten it up.

It should cover your head since that's its main purpose.
