This is when the curtain is down on one chapter of your life and rises to unveil the next one. In XII and the 13th century, medieval scholars wore this hat every day. Currently, the donning of this special cap is reserved for special academic events, especially for commencement exercise or graduation. The graduation cap usually consists of a black flat, square top, round head and a tassel hanging from above.


The graduation cap is usually referred to the “mortarboard.” This is because the surface area on it looks like a mortar container. Oxford cap is another popular name. In Australia and the UK, widely used terms for graduation cap. Students mostly wore graduation cap with toga also known as an academic dress.
