It is traditional for candidates to be ceremonially “hooded” prior to the grants of their degree. Graduate candidates will have their hood placed upon them by the program director of the Graduate Program. This special Hooding Ceremony does not take the place of the Commencement. Degrees will be granted at the Commencement Ceremony on Sunday afternoon.
A reception will follow this event in the University Center Commons from 8:30 p.m. – 9:15 p.m. All are welcome but an RSVP is helpful if you plan to attend.
