Graduates who wish to process in the GSAS Doctoral Convocation are required to wear academic attire. This consists of a robe, hood, and tam.
When your name is called and you cross the stage during the hooding ceremony, your hood should be unhooked and draped over your arm so it is easily accessible to the faculty member who will "hood" you.
You may order your academic attire online through Herff Jones between Monday, March 18 and Tuesday, April 16. If you missed the April 16th online deadline, you must place and pick up a late order on Thursday, May 16 during regular distribution hours.
For more information about late orders, picking up, and returning academic attire, please refer to the All-University Commencement website. All graduates must pick up their academic attire by Friday, May 17 in order to participate in the ceremony.
