First, put on the appropriate gown as in figure 1. Please refer to the Regalia requirements on page 9.
Next put on your Massey degree hood (figure 2) or diploma stole (figure 3). The rear view of the hood as shown in figure 2 is the most important. The hood should be anchored at about the level of your collarbone, resting high on the shoulders (not slipping down over your arms).
For Men: this can be by laying your tie over the loop on the front of the hood, and for Women:
it can be by securing the hood to each lapel of the gown using a safety pin from the underside.
The square tail of the hood lies next to your back, with the coloured lining concealed. The open cowl part should be turned inside out for a small part of its width to display some of the lining colour. The diploma stole is worn down the front of your gown as in figure 3.
Unless you have been previously ‘capped’, please do not wear your trencher until your qualification has been awarded (see “Receiving your Qualification” on page 11). Trenchers (figures 4 and 5) are worn with the deeper peak at the back; the board should be horizontal and the tassel may fall to either side. If wearing a bonnet the tassel should fall to your left as in figure 6.
If you are wearing a Korowai, it should be worn over the gown and under the hood as shown in figure 6. For more details, please see masseygowns.org.nz.
You will not receive your award unless appropriately dressed. The final decision on whether dress is appropriate will rest with the Graduation Marshal.

TE WHAKAWHIWHI TOHU
If you are being capped for the first time you should carry your trencher in your left hand until capped by the Chancellor. If you have been capped previously you are entitled to wear your trencher throughout the ceremony except when you are on the stage walking towards the Chancellor to receive your new qualification.
At the appropriate time the Pro Vice-Chancellor or nominated representative of the College will announce the award of the various certificates, diplomas and degrees in the order listed in the Graduation programme. Under the guidance of ushers you will move to the stairs on the right of the stage. As your name is called, holding your trencher in your left hand, you will advance across the stage and stand directly before the Chancellor.
You will be ceremoniously capped by the Chancellor who will shake your right hand. You will then put on your trencher and cross the stage to receive your scroll from the Director, Student Services, taking the scroll in the right hand (no handshake). Diploma and certificate awardees follow the same procedure except that the Chancellor will only shake hands. You will then move down the stairs where a photograph will be taken and then you will be guided back to your seat. Please keep your trencher on.
ENTRANCE OF THE OFFICIAL AND ACADEMIC PROCESSIONS
The audience is requested to stand as the Official and Academic Processions enter the auditorium at the commencement of the ceremony.
