The Registrar’s Office will order all caps, gowns and tassels and will notify candidates when materials arrive. Dual-Degree graduates may also use MCC’s cap and gown for the KSU ceremony. However, you will need to purchase a tassel for the KSU ceremony as it will be a different color.

Regalia is not to be ornamented. Wearing of corsages or boutonnieres is not appropriate to academic protocol. Honor and Veteran cords are to be worn around the neck and will be distributed by the Registrar’s Office prior to the ceremony.

Grades in all courses applicable to the degree must be reported to the Registrar’s Office. Official transcripts from other institutions must be sent to the Office of the MCC Registrar.
