The day you graduate from high school or college is an exciting time, signifying entry into a new chapter of your life. Little things such as how to wear the tassel may be far from your train of thought as you eagerly await your turn to receive your diploma. Practicing the tassel-moving process as you try on your cap and gown ensures you'll have it down pat when the big graduation moment arrives.
Put on your graduation cap in advance to practice, aligning one point of the cap directly over the center of your head. In other words, if a person were to stand directly above you, the cap should look like a diamond. Wearing the cap this way will make positioning your graduation tassels easier.
Place the tassels on the right side of the cap. Keep the tassels there as you sit through the ceremony.
Receive your diploma and face towards the audience after you do so.
Grab the tassels and flip them over to the left side of the cap. Keep the tassels there until you remove your graduation cap.
