How Do I Wear my Cord?

  • 1. Put on graduation gown.
  • 2. Remove cord from packaging. Drape the cord over your shoulders and around back of your neck. If you are wearing a collar, tuck the cord(s) underneath.
  • 3. Make sure the cord(s) fall evenly (in front) on both sides down the outside of your gown
  • 4. Enlist the help of a friend or faculty member to adjust the placement on the rear of the hood.

TIP: Pin the cords in place with a safety pin in the back of the gown below the neckline or underneath your hood to ensure it does not fall of or slip out of place

  • What is an honor cord?

    An honor cord is a symbol containing three small twisted cords with 4” knotted tassels on either end. Sometimes, cords come in pairs with a knot in the middle to hold them together which is referred to as a double cord. These honorary cords are typically used to show a “rite of passage”, either being members of an honor society or a variety of academic or non-academic ceremonies.
