The Hooding Ceremony is an event whereby recognition is given for those graduating with doctoral degrees. These individuals are doctoral candidates and will be full receipents of their doctorates at the graduation ceremonies. The Hooding Ceremony is symbolic of passing the guard from one generation of doctors to the next generation of doctors. During the ceremony a faculty advisor or Dean of the Graduate School place the doctoral hood over the head of the graduate, signifying his or her success in completing the graduate program. The ceremony is similar to a graduation in that faculty and students are dressed in academic attire. The Hooding Ceremony is in addition to and does not replace the Graduation Exercises.
