It can be difficult to find the answer to this question. There are two schools of thought, one says yes and the other says no. But which school is right?

The answer is yes! In most cases, you can wear hats in college. There are a few exceptions to this rule.

Yes. Universities will typically not confront students for wearing baseball caps, wool scarves, or other cold-weather gear on their heads. However, Ivy League institutions have dress codes that require appropriate headwear.

You can go ahead and rock that ball cap or beanie. However, some campuses take a more formal approach, meaning no sweatshirts or tennis shoes either! In these cases regular dress code will be enforced unless it is considered inclement weather.

Other says no Most colleges and universities do not allow students to wear hats without confrontation.

For example, if your university or school has a dress code that forbids hats on the premises, then you can’t wear one there. Some schools also limit how much skin can be shown and therefore restrict headwear like bandanas and ball caps as well. But for the most part, wearing a hat to class is acceptable!
