The Graduate School's 2022 PhD and MFA Hooding Ceremony is tentatively scheduled to take place during the weekend of June 11–13, 2022 to coincide with Commencement. More details will be shared as they become available.

Please note that September 2022 graduates will not be eligible to participate in this year’s hooding ceremony.

If you would like to participate in the hooding ceremony next June, please make adjustments now to ensure your degree will be awarded in Spring 2022 or before.

In order to participate in the 2022 hooding ceremony, graduate students must have their degree conferred in September 2021, December 2021, March 2022, or June 2022.

Starting in March 2022, The Graduate School will email an Intent to Participate form to eligible PhD and MFA graduates who complete all degree requirements. This form must be submitted on or before May 6, 2022 to participate in the 2022 hooding ceremony.
