It is advisable to sew your collars on your robe prior to the ceremony (with a baste stitch).
You should wear a lightweight garment under the robe for comfort.
Shoes should be black or a very dark color, and they should be a type in which you can walk easily and gracefully.


Wear dark pants. Shoes, socks and ties should be dark and inconspicuous. Black is the preferred color.
A white shirt with white collar is preferable.

At the end of the ceremony, the COM President will announce for all graduates to move their tassels to the left side to symbolize their graduation.
