Can you buy a graduation stole

You may wonder if wearing a stole has to be an earned privilege, or if any student can buy their own for graduation. While anyone can technically purchase a stole, the rules for wearing one might vary.

 Here are some ways to ensure you have the appropriate stole for graduation:

Ask your school

The rules at each individual school will dictate which can be worn and what they mean. Before you buy and wear your own stole, be sure your choice doesn’t conflict with any of the styles officially recognized at your school, as many (especially colleges and universities) have specific symbolism for stoles and their colors or styles.

Consult the official standards for graduation attire at your school, and if you’re still uncertain, go to the faculty and make a case for your stole and what it means to you.

Choose the right one

While researching, you may find that you’re eligible to wear a stole for one or several reasons. Clubs, sports teams, and other extracurricular activities are recognized with stoles at many schools. Non-academic stoles, such as Kente stoles, stoles of gratitude, and stoles recognizing volunteer work, open up even more opportunities to earn the garment.

In the event that you have several reasons to wear a stole, think about which was the most important or made the best memories, and capture that experience with your stole.

Get the stole

When it comes to purchasing, there are many styles and colors of stoles available online. Many students buy customizable stoles and add their own iron-on transfers and embroideries after. Some even make their own stole from scratch.

Whichever route you take, make sure to wear your stole proudly at graduation.
