  • Only the flat top area of the mortarboard (cap) may be decorated.
  • Decorations must lay flat on the surface of the cap; 3-D creations are prohibited.
  • Ensure that all decorations are secure and not falling off, including excessive glitter.
  • Cap decorations that are motivated by animosity against a person or group because of race, color, religion, sexual orientation, gender, disability, national origin, or which infringe on the rights and freedoms of others, will not be tolerated.
  • Decorations should not include:
    • Profanity
    • Symbols for or references to alcohol or controlled substances
    • Bows, ribbon, or tulle that does not lay flat on the cap
    • Three-dimensional objects
