*Dress Code: Rocky Mountain College Commencement is a formal ceremony for staff, faculty, friends, and most importantly, students. The College therefore requires all students to adhere to a formal dress code for the ceremony; men are expected to wear dress slacks and dress shirts and women appropriate skirts, dresses, or slacks. As there is a significant amount of walking and standing during the ceremony, comfortable shoes are recommended, and flip-flops will not be allowed.

Each student participating in the ceremony is required to wear the provided cap and gown, and no personalization of the caps may be made. The College recognizes that many students would like to wear uniforms or other cultural dress, and this is encouraged and accepted at all other graduation events, as well as under the cap and gown during the commencement ceremony.

*Note: In keeping with the formal tradition of commencement, noisemakers such as airhorns or cowbells are not allowed into the ceremony. The College asks that you and your family/guests honor this request.
