Viterbi MS graduates should rent/purchase a Master’s gown, black cap, and orange hood from the USC Bookstore. Do not get the yellow or goldenrod hood.
All items are available for purchase by using this website: https://academicregalia.herffjones.com/School/index. This includes bachelor, master's and doctoral regalia. The purchasing option is available all year round, customers just need to keep in mind the turnaround time for the regalia and order accordingly.
All students in all degree levels can wear sashes; it’s the student’s choice.
* Caps should be worn at all times, except during the invocation, benediction, and National Anthem, when gentlemen should remove their caps. The tassel is worn over the right temple. When the President salutes the graduates, it is appropriate for the graduates to respond by tipping their caps. Graduates may then move their tassels over to the left side.
