COVID-19 Safety Information

Hooding Instructions

  • If you are in the left line, your hood should be draped over your left arm, with the point to the inside of your body and the white velvet near your hand. Students entering from the right line should do the same with the hood draped over their right arm.
  • When you enter the stage, present your hood to the hooding faculty member directly in front of you, then turn to face the audience.
  • If you are taller than the hooding faculty, please bend at the knees so they can place it over your head.
  • The faculty members will correctly place and arrange the hood and tap you on the shoulder when it is time to move to meet the president, dean and exit the stage.
  • You will receive a reminder of this information when you arrive at 6 p.m. to check in and line up for the ceremony.
